Dobbies helps Southport to get growing

Staff and volunteers at Ainsdale Community Care ready to transform their garden for 150th Anniversary.

AS part of its community campaign, Dobbies Garden Centre Southport has helped to transform four local community gardens. Having urged local schools and community groups to get in touch, Dobbies Southport chose four inspiring projects to support. Macmillan Cancer Support Centre, St Marks Primary School, Ainsdale Community Care and Rethink all received over £500 worth of products, along with expert advice and assistance, to help bring their garden projects to life. The groups applied to Dobbies' Helping Your Community Grow campaign for support with their outdoor spaces that needed re-vamping. The programme aims to get communities growing and spending more time outdoors. This year it focused on 'welltality' gardens, aiming to improve health and wellbeing though gardening, from allotments in primary schools to dementia friendly gardens.

Zoe Stanmore, Community Champion for Dobbies Southport, said:- "It has been brilliant working with such a diverse range of projects and people. Gardening is a great activity for improving overall health and wellbeing for all ages, whether that is through growing your own veg or simply being able to enjoy a communal outdoor space“.

Dobbies has supported over 100 community garden makeovers around the UK this year.
