Helping hand for gardening group's vegetable patch!
by David Simister

A COMMUNITY gardening group in Ainsdale have been given a helping hand in making their efforts to create a vegetable patch a success.

Members of Faulkner’s Gardeners Club, based on Faulkner Close, were presented with a cheque for £100 by Tesco Community Champion Lesley Kirkbride as part of support being given to the project by Tesco and Dobbies' branches in Southport.

Lesley Kirkbride told The Champion: “We went along to visit the group, who have named themselves the Faulkner’s Gardeners club, and they are a group of local residents who are very keen with lots of ideas to get the local community involved to build a vegetable garden to help themselves to keep fit and help the environment and to be come self efficient and somewhere to socialise too.”

“The club submitted a ‘wish list’ to us and we donated a greenhouse and lots of tools to enable them to start with their plans.”
