Novus digs deep to create urban garden
We've been instrumental in creating a stunning urban garden for Langley House Trust residents in Rochdale. 

We've worked with Langley House Trust, which provides accommodation for ex-offenders as part of the rehabilitation process, for the last three years forging a successful partnership in the process. Through the contract, the team provides a mixture of day-to-day maintenance, emergency call outs and planned refurbishment and decorating, all coordinated by our Manchester office.
 
A team of operatives completing maintenance work at Tekoa House in Rochdale, a large hostel for homeless men and women including some who are at risk of offending, played a vital role in the creation of an urban garden. It soon became clear that the residents needed a garden area to use as a retreat as part of their rehabilitation, as well as for growing herbs and plants.
 
Over the course of four days Novus staff completely transformed the area outside Tekoa House, which had been little more than a concrete backyard, into an oasis for residents to enjoy for years to come. Labour and materials were supplied free of charge to the project as part of our commitment to being a responsible business.
 
Nigel Linger, operations manager at Novus, who was presented with a certificate by Langley House Trust for his work driving the project, commented: “It was a pleasure to be able to help make a difference to residents of Tekoa House. As a company we put a great deal of emphasis on doing our bit for the communities in which we operate and I know the staff enjoyed the opportunity to do something like this, especially hearing the positive feedback from the residents about what it means to them.”
