Community Garden Improvements

In addition to the new wall to protect the well in the Powburn Community Garden, further improvements are well underway.

A planter that will be used to create a bed of red roses has been constructed and installed at the Breamish Valley War Memorial. The angular, U-shaped wooden planter was made to the same high standards as the Bolton Road Sign Planters and the Powburn Road Sign Planters by Chris Armit from Newcastleton (Chris constructed the Bolton and Powburn planters).

Crab apples flowering in Community Garden

I’m sure that in a few year’s time, once they’ve become really established, they are going to look even better. They certainly cheer up the community garden, which is a real asset to the residents of Powburn.

Once again, many thanks to Sid for all his efforts in maintaining the garden for the benefit of residents and visitors.
