Our Raised Beds: We are almost there with our raised beds, and it is good to see the project almost in the completion stage. Two beds have been constructed, and we have broadened the paths around them for easier access. We have been successful in getting some funding from the Small Sparks Grant, administered by Whitley Bay’s Big Local,which will supply the beds with topsoil, and some special ergonomic tools. We also have two people keen on taking over the beds when these final things are done. By next spring we expect to have a new hosepipe at the front of the site, which will give the new gardeners closer access to water.
Thank you to everyone who has helped to make the raised beds a reality.
