This Saturday (August 20) saw the celebratory opening of the redeveloped communal garden at Queens Avenue, Little Lever. More than 50 members of the community came along to the launch.
We’ve worked with the community to overhaul the space after residents secured a combined £20,000 worth of funding from the Awards for All Lottery grants scheme, Bolton CVS and Bolton at Home.
Proceedings kick started with a ribbon cutting, before the grand unveiling of the garden, complete with raised flower beds, archways and a courtyard.
The event included food, music, bouncy castle, raffle and tombola with all of the proceeds raised at the event being put towards replenishing the garden flowers.
Saturday’s event was a real celebration of all the hard work that has gone into creating this beautiful communal garden. From the initial generation of funding, through to the planting and potting, the whole community has pulled together to create a space which can be enjoyed by all.
