The Welly Project - Manchester Road Park

Gardening

At the Welly Project we manage and maintain the bowling green and putting green. 

To do this Bury EST customers engage in horticultural activities, and grounds management and maintenance such as:

  • Grass maintenance: mowing, scarifying, feeding and weeding
  • Gardening: weeding borders and beds, planting, grass and hedge cutting
  • Painting borders of greens
  • Tool room and equipment management
  • Litter picks and general grounds maintenance
  • Taking bookings from bowling teams and dealing with payments

We also have allotments where we grow our own fruit and vegetables. These allotments are available for rent to the local community.
