Centre’s garden given makeover for all to enjoy
Freebridge Community Housing’s placeshaping team has breathed new life into the garden at the Discovery Centre in North Lynn.
Following on from work to plant a number of apple trees for a new community orchard in Great Massingham, this new planting sees Freebridge working again with the East of England Apples and Orchards Project and Garden Organic to revitalise the outside space at the centre.
Director of housing at Freebridge, Robert Clarke, said “Freebridge’s vision is to support a better West Norfolk.
“So in addition to all the work we do in developing and maintaining good quality homes we know that we need to join with partner organisations to work on projects to help improve the communities that people live in across the borough.
“We’ve completed a lot of work on improving and updating the Discovery Centre buildings in the last six months, which has been great to see.
“So we thought that now would be a good opportunity to do some work alongside some of our partners in preparing the garden for the year ahead.”
Volunteers from Garden Organic will be continuing to look after the centre’s garden with help from Family Action, who run support sessions for local families on Friday mornings and will be offering horticulture training courses there too, soon.
