A CARE home has had a garden makeover thanks to some handy work from a group of volunteers.

Youngsters on Daventry’s Prince’s Trust course carried out the work at Badby Care Home.

The group of 16 to 25-year-olds are on a 12-week course which aims to improve their chances of future education and employment.

Project leader Matt Ottley said: “Everybody has worked really hard on the project and I think Badby Park are happy with how it’s worked out.

“What we did was dig up the grass and level it out as much as we could. We then put down a concrete path and gravelled it.

“We have also planted around 150 trees. It’s low maintenance so the residents of the care home will be able to go into the garden and do some wedding and plant watering and we also made a bench from scratch for them to sit on.”

“We have another Prince’s Trust team starting in Daventry on Tuesday, May 8 and we are now looking to recruit 16 to 24-year-olds for that course.”
