The Prince’s Trust group from Deepdale have spent 12-weeks in the walled garden.

On Friday (6 July) they handed over the garden to Let’s Grow Preston to continue to maintain.

They’ve been cutting back hedges, building new compost bins and improving the look of the garden.

He said: “The work the young people from the Prince’s Trust have carried out is fantastic, in more ways than one.

“Not only have they gained team building and gardening skills, but it’s boosted their confidence too. Let’s Grow Preston do a great job for the community and the council is honoured to support them in their work.

“With the ongoing improvements to the garden, it’s proving to be an essential community facility.”
