Greenhouse request yields results at St Mary’s Lodge
Residents of St Mary’s Lodge, a sheltered housing development for over 60s in Scarborough, will be able to grow salad crops and their own vegetables next summer after receiving a new greenhouse.
This is thanks to a donation from ventilation manufacturer EnviroVent, which is based in Harrogate.
EnviroVent gifted the greenhouse which now has pride of place in its gardens after receiving a request by Sanctuary Housing, owners of St Mary’s, to help with replacing an old one, which was in a bad condition.
Andy Pearson, trades supervisor from Sanctuary Housing, said: “We’re delighted that EnviroVent was able to help our residents out by providing a new greenhouse and we would like to thank them for their support.
“It will mean a lot to them to be able to grow their own fruit and vegetables again, with benefits to both their health and well-being.”
Lewis Ronaldson, EnviroVent’s ventilation specialist, said: “It’s great to see the new greenhouse at St Mary’s Lodge and to know that it will be put to great use by the residents.
“We are proud to work with Sanctuary Housing and to be able to give something back to the community here in Scarborough.”
