A team of young adults taking part in The National Citizens Service did an incredible job of tidying up Spilsby Theatre garden.

Using Spilsby Theatre as a base for their activities the group began planning and organising the project and fundraising at the beginning of August.

There are long terms plans for the theatre’s gardens and The Sessions House Gardens project manager Cat Henton and head gardener Andrew Gunn assisted the NCS team.

The teenagers, who have just completed their GCSEs, also fundraised for the When You Wish Upon a Star charity which grants the wishes of children with life threatening illness.

Alexandra Adderley from Woodhall, a participant in the project explained: “It’s good because we are doing something for the community that will have a lasting effect.”

The clearing and planting has given a huge boost to ongoing gardens project.

Individuals and both Spilsby florists, Kind Thoughts and Scentiments, donated flowers and plants. Saplings removed from the garden are being transplanted in a new forest area nearby.

The gardens project still needs help and support with donations of bulbs and any volunteers who can help with the ongoing work.

Anyone able to help should contact the theatre on 01790 752936.
