Garden Buddies Membership

Garden Buddies carries out basic garden maintenance work, including: lawn mowing, hedge cutting, pruning, digging, strimming, garden clearance.

Garden Buddies is a membership scheme which provides low-cost gardening services to the people who really need it. Accordingly, snvb reserves the right to refuse membership.

To qualify as a member, garden owners must:

  • live in South Northamptonshire
  • be unable to carry out the work themselves, due to age or disability
  • have no-one living with them or within a reasonable distance, who could be expected to help
  • live on a restricted income eg, a means-tested benefit or a basic state pension.

We have a separate arrangement for South Northants Homes tenants.  If your landlord is SNH please contact them in the first instance.

Otherwise to join, just download and print the Membership Application Form from the link below and return together with your cheque made payable to SNVB for the annual membership fee of £15 to:

Garden Buddies, Volunteer Centre, Whittons Lane, Towcester, Northants, NN12 6YZ.

If you prefer, please call us.
