Better BarnsleyLoxley Community Garden

Henry Boot Construction were recently approached by Berneslai Homes on behalf of Loxley Community Garden in Wombwell. The Community Garden on Loxley Avenue is now in its second year, having been created by tenants and residents, Wombwell Housing Management Team, Ward Alliance, Wombwell TARA and Barnsley Council's Community Development Team.

The project is proving to be a great success with around thirty raised beds and a selection of fruit trees. The team were looking for reclaimed materials and Henry Boot were happy to help. Whilst stripping out some of the shopping units on Cheapside, the team kept their eye out for timber, which has now been recycled and delivered. They now wish to build a pergola and create seating areas before hosting a summer fair.

"Thank you very much for arranging the delivery of the reclaimed timber for our community garden pergola project. We are also hoping that there will be some old paving slabs which can be recycled from the town centre to be used as a base for our compost bin. The community garderners very much appreciate Henry Boot's support on this project."
