Bath volunteers dig deep for homeless
A band of volunteers have given two garden plots used by homelessness charity Julian House a makeover.
The 12-strong team from baby food company Danone have been working on land at Corn Street as part of a workplace scheme to encourage community work.
The staff from the Trowbridge firm's supply chain department had been planning the exercise for several months.
Their original concept was just to clear the two overgrown gardens and do some basic design work, but they now want to include a herb garden, wall painting, soft fruit patch, vegetable plot, composter, water butt and a recycling area.

Julian House funding manager Cecil Weir said: "Managing any of our supported housing projects is quite a demanding task.
"Understandably the well- being of our residents is our number one priority, which means that the gardens don't always receive as much attention as we would like. This support from Danone is absolutely fantastic. They've really thought about the spaces and what would work best for the Julian House clients who'll be using them.
"Once completed we are very hopeful that the residents themselves will look after the ongoing maintenance and in doing so, will get the same fulfilment and enjoyment that all of us achieve from a pleasant garden space."
