We had a great event today at the Heritage Centre. Our new quiet garden, aka ‘The Apedale Bowl’ was officially opened by Newcastle Borough Mayor, Councillor Sandra Hambleton. The garden is the result of a collaboration between Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, Newcastle Countryside Project, Action Apedale and Regent College to give an unused patch of ground a pirpose. The funding for the project came from grants by the Realise Foundation and the Tarmac Landfill Communities Fund. The space will be used for community and education sessions, amongst other things or just to find a bit of peace and quiet.
