Let’s Grow Preston’s Charlotte Gillett said: “The walled garden in which the Spring Fair is taking place is a beautiful space which shows all the hard work of the staff and volunteers of Let’s Grow Preston.

“It is with thanks to the National Lottery Community fund that Let’s Grow Preston is able to continue to promote well-being by connecting the city of Preston to green spaces.

“As Let’s Grow Preston is a charity, donations are kindly received to help us continue with our great work.”
