The garden outside Murrow Children’s Centre has been transformed – thanks to Murrow Youth Club.

The Children Centre offers support and activities to families with children under the age of 5, including easier ways to access health and family support, help with finding jobs and training, drop-in sessions and activities and information about local childcare and early education.

The gardening project has transformed the garden outside the Children’s Centre from an overgrown and untidy garden in a beautiful space where the children can help to plant and water the flowers and practise digging for treasure in a specially allocated flower bed.

The project has included two gardening days, one in the May half term holiday and another in October. The sessions were open to the whole community and are supported by Children’s Centre staff and youth workers.

B & Q Wisbech and Patricks Gravel donated flowers, compost and gravel for the project, which will continue into next year with a day planned in the spring to replant all the beds. Until then Murrow Youth Club will look to have a series of sessions at the garden to keep the garden tidy and the weeds at bay. B & Q have agreed to continue supporting the project with the donation of flowers for the spring.
