In November 2018, Mountjoy took part in a garden clearance project arranged through Portsmouth City Council. This was on behalf of a local disabled resident who had been unable to use the space for a number of years due to litter and overgrowth. The garden is now due to be landscaped and made functional for the resident.
The project, led by Tony Kessack, Foreman at Mountjoy, involved the dismantling of three sheds along with tidying the lawn to increase accessibility for the resident. Tony, joined by other volunteers from Mountjoy, spent a day ensuring the garden was ready for further work. The project forms part of Mountjoy’s Social Value and Sustainability Plan, whereby all staff are offered one day of paid volunteering to support the local community.
