RESIDENTS at The Lawns Residential Home in Alvechurch have been busy in their greenhouse ahead of their garden fete this month.

With help from Littleheath Garden Centre in Lickey End, Bromsgrove, they planted seeds to produce vegetables and flowers which will be displayed and sold at the event and the greenhouse is now bursting with new plants.

Rebecca Guy, team leader at The Lawns, said: “I was a little worried about getting involved with the gardeners as I hadn’t got much experience, but Littleheath has been an enormous support and made gardening an absolute pleasure.

“Our residents love their garden and I can’t thank Littleheath enough for the happiness it has given everyone at The Lawns.”

The garden fete takes place on Saturday, September 21 from noon until 4pm. For more details, see
