We recently teamed up with local partner DAL Contractors to assist in the restoration of a community garden project in Barnsley called Owd Martha's Yard. The garden is at the rear of the Hoyland Belmont Club, where a group of volunteers have been working hard to bring an unloved piece of land back to life again for the whole community to enjoy.

As part of the restoration, we helped DAL Contractors with the external paving works so that the garden would be ready for the community in the summer.

Volunteering with projects like Owd Martha’s Yard has a variety of health and wellbeing benefits for the community, including helping people get active and meet new people, as well as creating a sense of community pride.

Alison Richardson, one of the regular volunteers at the yard said, “Thank you to Henry Boot Construction and DAL Contractors. The new patio areas have made a huge difference to the garden, not to mention the fact that there is less to weed.”
