National Lottery garden funding for the Drop in Centre

The Drop in Centre has secured #Nationallottery funding to enable us to renovate the gardens at Harding Avenue.

We have lots of groups now using this vibrant community space and the renovations to make the gardens accessible to the disabled and wheelchair users will be a great addition.

We are hoping to arrange volunteer days when the local community can help us level the ground before the installation of seating areas, sensory flower beds, water feature and shaded seating areas.

At the community jubilee coffee morning there were willing volunteers to hold the cheque as they said, “we can dream of holding a winning cheque,”

The flower girls start their journey

The instructor was ready, we were all ready and the flowers were all ready for us to create. First we were instructed then we produced our attempts.

Remember this is week 1, but follow us on our 6 week course of two hours on a Thursday afternoon at the Drop in Centre.

The first two weeks are free, then £3.00 per week which covers the cost of the flowers and greenery we use.

Maybe you would like to come to the course when it starts again, you will be very welcome and you will have lots of laughs, we did.

Instructor Deborah.

And here are our first attempts. The first without a proud arranger is your editors.

And this is the instructors alternate version we could make.
