My Stanley

Stanley Councillors Sir Merrick Cockell, William Pascall and Paul Warrick were elected earlier this year and after a busy year of City Living, Local Life projects last year and are getting ready for a new year of projects.

Councillors wanted to involve residents in identifying priorities issues that City Living, Local Life projects could address. So a co-produced survey was sent to all households in the ward. This survey found that the types of projects most supported by the residents were:

- projects involving local hospitals

- projects or activities for young people

- community events

- community kitchen gardens

- local history projects

With these resident priorities in mind, Stanley Ward Councillors supported the production of a leaflet for young peoples’ uniformed organisations and funded two garden projects in Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

£5000 was given to the Chelsea and Westminster Health Trust to trStanleyansform part of the Hospital’s garden into a community kitchen garden. Another £3000 was granted to create an internal edible garden on the Hospital’s third floor for patients and staff to enjoy.

A report outlining the findings of the survey can be viewed here [PDF] (file size 863kb).

  • City Living, Local Life: Chelsea and Westminster Hospital Gardens

    Imagine what a difference a garden can make when you’re a hospital in-patient. As grateful as we are for the care and dedication afforded to us, nobody likes going to Hospital. And it’s not just being ill; hospitals are too often oppressive, uninviting environments to exist in. Everything is sanitised and strip-lit. Earlier this year, […]
