A huge volunteer effort has helped revamp a derelict area of land at the Geoff Moulder Leisure Complex and turn it into a relaxing community garden.

The area, behind the training pool, now has a water feature, benches and planting, including fruit bushes and herbs.

A large patio area has been created with existing slabs relaid and tons of pink granite used to make stable walking and planting areas.

Most of the work was done by volunteer gardeners from Boston Greenscapers, with support from Boston Borough Council, local contractors and Geoff Moulder staff.

The majority of plants for the garden were provided by B&Q at a substantial discount. The garden has been financed by the Lincolnshire Health and Well Being Fund and will be used to promote the benefits of edible gardening as well as doubling up as an attractive space for outdoor fitness classes.

It will be opened by Mayor Coun Paul Kenny, at 12.30pm on Thursday, August 15.
