My main contribution to restoration of these 12th century Grade II listed parks gardens set in 3.2 Thames side acres was to oversee the change the use from being a rather neglected and rarely used (apart from largely anti-social behaviour) garden to being a purple flag garden that is now accessed by all areas of the community all year round.

I worked as head gardener managing the restoration whilst running several events such as team challenges with local community and business.

Utilising my teaching experience I set up a programme with the probation service involving clients in the restoration of the park and is doing do teaching skills in landscaping and delivery of the NVQ delivery for students from Reading Jail and the creation of plots for people with physical and mental disabilities.
