We started the new gardening project here at the LGBT+ centre a few weeks ago. Thank you to the volunteers who came along to help us fill all the wonderful planters at the front of the centre.
We spent the afternoon flexing our muscles and filling our planters with soil kindly donated by West Coast Group, www.west-coast-group.co.uk.
Volunteers also planted lots of shade loving plants to brighten up Victoria Place, including Hostas, Anemone, Astilbe, Geum, Geranium and Acers, as well as Honeysuckle and Jasmine for some lovely fragrance!
We also enjoyed the sunshine and plenty of tea, squash, cake and chat!
