We needed a couple of volunteers to help us put up our new polytunnel in our Community Garden and in the boiling July heat, they came along and helped us achieve this, a great effort by everyone!!

Moving forward, this space will allow us to grow more wonderful fruit and veggies on site, which will in turn, create lots of future volunteer roles!



A great day on site, BIG thanks to some brilliant volunteers Tim Powell and Jon Bowyer who toiled all day in the hot July sun, we now have our Polytunnel on site in the community garden, and what a beauty she is!!

There's still a little bit to do on the inside, but this is HUGE PROGRESS and will mean that we have an accessible space for people of all abilities to use it and enjoy growing and helping in the garden.

Now we need to plan what to grow... and get some volunteers in to help us make it happen! Who's in? 😀

Thanks to our funders:

This wonderful project has been made possible thanks to funding received from Flintshire Local Voluntary Council/Community Foundation.
