Freebridge Community Housing planting for the Discovery Centre

Freebridge Community Housing

Freebridge Community Housing’s Placeshaping Team has again teamed up with the East of England Apples and Orchards Project alongside national charity Garden Organic to breathe new life into the garden at the Discovery Centre in North Lynn.

Following on from work with the East of England Apples and Orchards Project to plant a number of apple trees for a new community orchard in the village of Great Massingham earlier this year, this new planting sees Freebridge working with the Orchards Project and Garden Organic to revitalise the outside space at the Discovery Centre in North Lynn.

Director of Housing at Freebridge Robert Clarke said “Freebridge’s vision is to support a better West Norfolk, so in addition to all the work we do in developing and maintaining good quality homes we know that we need to join with partner organisations to work on projects to help improve the communities that people live in across the borough.

“We’ve completed a lot of work on improving and updating the Discovery Centre buildings in the last six months which has been great to see, so we thought that now would be a good opportunity to do some work with alongside some of our partners in preparing the garden for the year ahead.”

Volunteers from Garden Organic will be continuing to look after the garden at the Discovery Centre with help from Family Action who run support sessions for local families from the Centre on Friday mornings. Family Action will also be offering a number of horticulture training courses delivered from the Centre details of which will be available soon.
