Organisation Description

Phoenix House and Court have beautiful gardens that are looking for some green fingered volunteers to help give the boarders some love back as they have become a little neglected and overgrown, we are looking for as much or as little as anyone can offer us. We have some tools here already and not expecting anyone to do anything heavy such as digging unless they want to.
We have won Frome In Bloom trophies for several years and would like to increase our winning streak.
