Bristol Noise get pruning to help a resident in need



Thanks to Bristol Noise and our Tenancy Impact Team, one Lockleaze resident has had help to maintain her garden.

Our resident was unable to prune her garden hedge herself, so Tenancy Impact Officer, Marion Pitter, organised support from Bristol Noise. Husband and wife team, Steve and Sue (pictured) who volunteer at Bristol Noise, stepped in to lend a helping hand.

Marion explained: “Bristol Noise is a community-run project of volunteers who come together to host a weekend of events and practical projects across the city. The event took place over the May bank holiday weekend. This year, we were fortunate to have them transform the gardens of some of our residents who are unable to maintain their gardens themselves.

“Steve and Sue did a brilliant job pruning the hedge, which they said was quite challenging. They spent time chatting with our resident and popped next door, with permission, to do some cutting from the neighbours’ side of the hedge. The result was a beautifully maintained hedge, and it really cheered up our resident.”
