Colleagues from the Louth branch of the Nottingham and Peterborough Building Society have helped sow the seeds for a thriving community garden in the town by donating and planting native hedges and fruit trees.

Louth Park Avenue Community Gardens are a focal point for the area 
and attract residents of all 
ages.

The gardens provide free produce to be picked or the use of tools for those who want to dig in.

A team from the Louth branch of Norwich and Peterborough Building Society spent their first volunteering session at the gardens, where they offered their green fingers to the flourishing community area.

The project was part of the society’s volunteering scheme which allows every colleague up to 31 hours paid leave a year to help out at charity or good cause of their choice.

Claire Corn, the branch manager in Louth, said: “The project was delighted with our generosity in supplying and installing the hedges and trees.

“I really enjoyed organising the day and hope our efforts are worthwhile to the gardens.”
