Green-fingered residents at the Chirk Court care home in Chirk are getting set to grow their own vegetables thanks to support from a local firm of tree care specialists.

Rob Mays from Evolution Arbtech, based in Oswestry, donated materials and his time last week, to create a vegetable plot for the residents who live in Berwick household at the Chirk Court home which is managed by Clwyd Alyn Housing Association.

“It’s such a superb gesture and is really appreciated by our residents,” said Mandi Southern, Activity Coordinator at Chirk Court.

“One of our residents in particular, Alan Jones, is absolutely thrilled. Gardening has been a life-long favourite pastime and now he’s looking forward to growing his potatoes, onions and carrots, with a little support from the staff.

“Staff, residents and their families would all like to thank Rob so much for helping make this to happen,” Mandi added.
