Planting Event at BITMO’s Sheltered Housing


BITMO (Belle Isle Tenant Management Organisation) sheltered residents along with young people from the South Leeds Youth Hub spent an enjoyable afternoon planting up hanging baskets and pots for the residents to enjoy through the summer.

BITMO Youth Hub plantingYouth services have obtained Well Being funding to undertake an inter-generational project which aims to break the barriers between the younger generation and older people living in Belle Isle.

The group first met up at the Wetherby Whaler where they got to know each other over a fish & chip lunch. As well as the planting event, the group have had a game of bowls on the green at the back of the sheltered housing complex on Belle Isle Circus and there are further events planned including more planting at the Broom Nook sheltered complex.
