NORTHWOOD COMMUNITY GARDEN - AN OASIS IN THE MIDDLE OF KIRKBY

Local organisations and Knowsley Borough Council have worked together to turn wasteland next to the Northwood House site into a community garden with help from CETT, the Community Environmental Task Team.

It won't be long before the garden is open for everyone to enjoy. Sisters Sue and Lynne Smith have been involved in the plans from the very beginning. Sue works for the SRB office in the Northwood area and Linda is involved with the Residents Association.
