Evesham, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 06, 2012 -- As many of you will know, Plumbworld are very keen to help out where they can in various communities, recently featuring as bathrooms supplier on TV programmes such as Cowboy Builders and also Sarah Beenys, Help! My House is Falling Down. This time was no exception when help was needed.
The North Finchley Allotment Society is located just off Summers Lane in Finchley, Greater London. The site consists of two large fields and is council owned and managed, however there is a large group of members that work on the management committee that act between the site and the council. The idea of the scheme is to get the allotment to become a 'self-managed site' where the group has sole responsibility for running the society.
James Hickman, Managing Director of Plumbworld said:
"When Peter from the North Finchley Allotment Society got in contact with us, the only question we had to ask was how soon do you want the items? We were given a lowdown on what the project was all about and how it would benefit the surrounding community and thought it was a great opportunity to get involved."
Recently Plumbworld has also funded a tree planting project which is funded by a carbon offset scheme that is currently running on their website.
Scott Morris, E-Commerce Manager of Plumbworld added:
"The site itself was originally prone to fly tipping and the team at North Finchley were left to clean up a complete mess and transform it into something that the community would not only use, but also enjoy. Our contribution aided to the toilet block creation which is pivotal to the whole allotment project".
