COM­MU­NITY HAPPY TO DIG IN AND HELP SPRUCE UP AU­DREY’S GAR­DEN

Kalamunda Reporter - - Opinion -

THE Swan View com­mu­nity has ral­lied around their oc­to­ge­nar­ian neigh­bour to help spring clean her large block.

Neigh­bour David Best said af­ter putting a call out on Face­book he re­ceived 60 of­fers of help.

“Last Satur­day 15 lo­cals turned up to tidy up Au­drey’s gar­den, in­clud­ing weeding and chop­ping out some big trees,” he said.

“Au­drey was over­whelmed with all the work and the gen­eros­ity of her neigh­bours who sup­plied morning and afternoon tea and some lunch.”

Mr Best said Au­drey had strug­gled to main­tain her 3035sq m block since her hus­band died three years ago.

“Her el­dest son lives three hours away and her other son has a child with se­ri­ous dis­abil­ity so they are un­able to help their mum much,” he said. “It’s been a plea­sure to be able to help her out and see the com­mu­nity pull to­gether for a wor­thy cause.”
