In 2009 £1.1m of Playbuilder Funding was secured by our Horticultural Development Manager, to improve 18 existing playgrounds and create 4 new schemes.
In addition, over £250k of funding gained from bodies such as the Heritage Lottery Fund and the London Marathon Trust has to date funded a trim trail, created a wildflower meadow in line with the new Green Spaces Strategy and improved housing planting schemes and local playground facilities.
Our Horticultural Development Manager has worked with local community groups to gain funding on their behalf and to teach them to be self-sustaining in the future. He has also promoted horticulture and vegetable growing in schools. He also works closely with the Client on projects such as the development of the Green Spaces Strategy, liaising with the contract management team to change working practices as necessary.
