Adding a welcoming place of respite for their community, @oursavioursknox refurbished the front entrance of their church thanks to an LLL 100 Year Anniversary Grant.
Members from both the church congregation and Knox Lion’s Club formed a working bee to prepare the corner space, digging out the old leaf garden bed in preparation for the concrete base for the artificial grass. They did an amazing job transforming the dusty garden bed into a sun-filled multipurpose space and added a community seat.
The refurbishment included the installation of a low-maintenance garden space, including an outdoor table and bench seating under the newly constructed verandah. The area has become more usable as well as aesthetically pleasing and inviting.
The Church’s youth members and Sunday School children have already made good use of the new space and the area will continue to serve as a welcoming zone that can be utilised to engage the community and its members.
