The beautifully maintained communal gardens are managed by Dovedale Court Tenant and Resident Group.

Dovedale Court Tenant and Resident Group with The Customer Engagement Team from Halton Housing

The Dovedale Court Tenant and Resident Group have been a recognised group for 4 years now and they do such an excellent job with the gardens and are the deserving 2019 communal garden winners. The group have turned this small space into what is now a fantastic courtyard garden that is welcoming, bright and aesthetically pleasing.

Not only have Dovedale Court Tenant and Resident Group won the 2019 Communal Garden Competition, but they have also been awarded the 2019 Tenant & Resident Grant of £500.

The Customer Forum agreed that the grant which is awarded annually should be awarded to the Dovedale Court Tenant and Resident Group. The grant will be used to help with the cost of room hire and other things such as printing, ensuring the group can continue to run effectively and efficiently.

Previously this area had issues of anti-social behaviour with children, but since the garden maintenance begun on the gardens, it is now respected by the local children and they seem to appreciate the hard work and efforts by the residents.

Mr Odley said:
We work hard keeping the gardens in good appearance. It’s great to be recognised for our hard work. I plan on spending the vouchers on new pots and bushes to add to the array of flowers and plants we already have. It would be great to see more people get involved, it is very enjoyable.

Debbie Jameson of Halton Housing said:

Dovedale Court is an excellent example of what a successful Tenant and Resident group can achieve.  The group work hard to maintain this area and it is a pleasure to walk around.  Halton Housing would like to thank the Dovedale Tenant and Resident group for all their fantastic work in maintaining the garden and we look forward to working alongside them in the future.
