Support our Grounds Maintenance Customer Panel

  • The Neighbourhood Services Team invites customers to get involved in our service by being part of our Grounds Maintenance Customer Panel.
  • This involves residents assisting us with measuring customer satisfaction of our grounds maintenance service. Checks are carried out approximately four times a year and residents can choose to take part in one or all of the checks, depending on what suits them.
  • We provide all training and then send residents out in teams of two or three to complete the checks. Residents check the quality of grass cutting, shrub pruning and weed spraying on our estates. The results influence the incentive payments that Glendale may receive as part of their contract.

Get in touch by contacting us on 01204 328000 or alternatively via email on

Make a change in your community

  • Join a community group or tenants and residents association. There are a number of these across our estates and they are a great way to help improve your community.

In your words

“The reason I joined SIPS (Seniors in Partnership Group) was for Lever Gardens to get a voice”

In your words

"The SIP group is a good way of finding out what’s going on within Bolton at Home and it helps and supports older customers to address their issues."
