Volunteers rolled up their sleeves and mucked in to help tidy and spruce up the area around a community centre in Wellingborough.
It was a team effort as people gave up their time to help with a clean-up of the outside of Glamis Hall on the Queensway estate last weekend.
Graham Campbell from Glamis Hall for All, which took over the running of the hall after Wellingborough Council transferred it to them, said: “We decided to do a bit of gardening to brighten it up a bit.
“We’ll be planting a few flowers to make the entrance a bit more attractive until we can make a start with the re-development.”
Glamis Hall provides a lunch club for the over-50s from 11am to 2pm every Monday to Friday with a three-course meal and activities.
They also run the well-being centre which is open from 9.30am to 3pm Monday to Friday.
As well as providing a three-course meal and activities, there are other services on offer including assisted bathing for those who cannot bath or shower at home on their own.
Fundraising is needed to help cover the costs of running Glamis Hall, and they are delighted to have the support of Plumbco in Wellingborough which is holding a beer festival from 2.30pm until late on Saturday, September 5.
As well as various beers to try, there will be a hog roast and live band.
Graham added: “They are splitting all the money raised between Glamis Hall and Help for Heroes so this will help us tremendously.”
