A NEGLECTED garden has been transformed Ground-force-style by an environmental charity.

The garden belonging to Home-Start in Bedwell, Stevenage, was turned into a safe children's garden in just one day.

Charity Groundwork helped Home-Start, a charity that provides volunteers to support and mentor young families, and runs weekly family group sessions at the centre.

Lif Bishop, manager at Home-Start, said: "We are really looking forward to being able to use our outdoor area for the families attending the groups.
