GIVING A HELPING HAND BY WORKING TOGETHER

     

Despite the rain Minister Peter Lyth together with members of the Ainsdale Village Church were on hand to welcome members of the Ainsdale Horticultural Society and their Chairman Tricia Pearce.

The occasion was for the AHS to present the Church and the Community Garden with a new much needed oak Notice Board which complements the seating already in the garden.

The Ainsdale Horticultural Society who sponsor the garden were keen to give this added support recognising that the garden, initiated in the first instance by the Ainsdale Village Church, was providing the community with a much needed facility that was being enjoyed by everyone.

Also present was Coast and Countryside Officer Ian McAleavy who supervises the Council workshop who in addition to training those with various disabilities provides them with a trade that allows them to produce such excellent work as in the Notice Board and the gardens trellis and seating.

Following the presentation, coffee and refreshments were provided in the vestry.
