Cleaner and greener community award

• Wayne Trevor

Wayne volunteered at the West Norwood Feasts, ran a Trade School growing edible flowers, and has helped local residents with their gardens. For the past year Wayne has dedicated a vast amount of time on a new project called the West Norwood Bzz Garage. He approached the garage and got their permission to transform the space with attractive bee-friendly plants.

(quoted from Love Lambeth Website – please visit the Love Lambeth Website to see the other winners – well done everyone!

Wayne’s project was part of The Open Works scheme to help people in the community to kick start their ideas and help them network with others – the Rock Paper Scissors London group was also part of this and The Stitch too – there are many other groups that are still growing from the Lambeth project which you can read more about it here. The Open Works you will also find their report – which is very stylish and huge! and goes into the why and how plus on how to expand the project to the other parts of the UK!

 

Please note the photos are from the sites you can visit by clicking on the images – I was unable to see names of who took them so if you know then I can credit them on this blog post.

This blog post has also been posted on The Stitch website – Wayne helped the Stitch members to harvest the Lavender outside the West Norwood Bus Station to use for their crafts and helped drag all their materials and sewing machines to their storage place, so he is a very helpful man! 😀
