With the help of our community relations team, the Jerningham Court tenants’ and residents’ association (TRA) has successfully transformed the gravel area at the back of their block into a beautiful green space that residents can enjoy.
Members of the TRA spoke to nearly every resident at Jerningham Court when putting the plans together for the garden which now has soft surface areas, a lawn and a BBQ area.
Jerningham Court TRA Chair, Patrick Nwachukwu, said of the project: “This has injected a sense of hope and optimism amongst residents about their community. It makes where I live more homely. Residents have commented on how looking at the lush turf has lifted their mood and general wellbeing. The derelict area is no longer an eyesore – it is looking beautiful.
“Working with the Community Relations Team has been encouraging from the get go. They are the dream team! They turned our dream into reality. Will Cooper believed in us and took time out of his very busy schedules to meet with us in person (before covid-19) and virtually on evenings and weekends. We can’t thank the team enough. Will and Alys – thank you for your invaluable support.”
