Barratt London go gardening with volunteering day at Hendon allotments – London Post

On Monday 8th August, staff from housebuilder Barratt London, responsible for the Hendon Waterside development on Moorhen Drive, spent the day volunteering for West Hendon Allotment Society (WHAS). The team of nine volunteers swapped their steel-toed boots for gardening gloves to help clear the allotments car park of debris and overgrown plants.

Under the supervision of representatives from WHAS, the team of sales advisors and site managers were able to clear a significant proportion of the overgrown plants and stubborn foliage at the entrance to the site. As a result of their hard work, the allotment plot-holders will now have access to over five additional spaces in the car park.

Justin Bissell, Chairman of West Hendon Allotment Society, comments: “On behalf of all our members and plot-holders, I would like to thank Barratt London for their hard work at the site. The car park at the entrance to our allotments has been overgrown and difficult to use for a long time now, and we have always planned to clear it but never had the time. At weekends, the allotments can get very busy and it’s great to know that we are no longer limited by the number of people who can park on site.”

As part of the housebuilder’s commitment to the local communities surrounding its developments, staff from Barratt London regularly partake in volunteering opportunities. In Hendon, workers at the site have previously spent a day litter picking on the nearby Welsh Harp Reservoir, making the area a cleaner space for residents and visitors to enjoy.

Joe Antoniazzi, Head of Sales at Barratt West London, said: “We see the value that West Hendon Allotment Society offers to the community near our Hendon Waterside development, and we’re proud to have been able to assist them. We understand the importance of green space in London which is why we ensure this is a key design feature in all our developments. With this in mind, we are delighted to enhance this area of green space within the local area for the Hendon community. We hope our contributions have improved the car park area for the allotment plot–holders and that they will now be able to make use of it far more.”
