    My Mum has Alzheimer's, Dad multiple physical problems. Garden has been neglected and is in a mess. I have a vague memory that Dad had a lead on a charitable trust, or similar, that would do a "one off" clean up of such a garden, at a fairly cheap price, but after that family needed to do the maintenance or pay someone to do it.

    Neither Dad nor I can find where he made a note of the contact for this. :confused:

    Is this ringing bells with anyone?

    If it is relevant, they are in the London Borough of Waltham Forest.

    Age UK do a subsidised gardening service, each area seems to have its own website.

    Sorry just checked and Waltham Forest doesn't list gardening as one of their services.

    Some areas use community service 'pay back' to do this sort of thing.
