The Friends of Gateshead Central Library have received an award from the councillors of the Saltwell Ward to help develop and maintain a community garden at the rear of the Central Library. The grant will allow the Friends to arrange a series of gardening workshops to encourage local people to grow their own fruit, vegetables and flowers.
There will also be a family carnival in June as part of Gateshead Together week.
The Friends of Central Library are looking for volunteers from the Saltwell area to get involved.
