Eastbourne Homes has re-launched its free garden equipment hire service for the summer season.

Eastbourne Homes residents can borrow an equipment pack which includes a lawnmower, strimmer, forks, rakes, shears, secateurs and safety equipment.

Sheilagh Phillips from Seaside borrowed the equipment last year and is all set to do the same now the weather has improved.

She said, “I’ve got a big garden and equipment such as lawnmowers are so expensive. It’s a brilliant service as there’s all the equipment you might need and I’ve recommended the service to neighbours.”

Sarah Roberts, community initiatives officer at Eastbourne Homes, said, “This is a great system as it allows residents to spruce up their gardens. “

The kit is delivered to properties on a Friday and collected the following Thursday.
