Magical wildlife reading garden opens at Roseworth Library in Stockton | Tees Valley Wild Green Places
The Mayor of Stockton, Cllr Eileen Johnson, cut the green ribbon to open the new Wildlife Garden at Roseworth Library on Friday 3rd August. The garden is a partnership project of the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust and Stockton Libraries. The Wildlife Trust helped the Roseworth Residents Association apply for funding for the garden to the Tesco Bags of Help Fund. It was shortlisted and Tesco customers were able to vote for their favourite local initiative. Roseworth residents demonstrated their support by making special trips to Tesco to vote and, as a result, the garden project was awarded the second prize of £2,000. Additional funds were received from the Roseworth Big Local and Heritage Lottery Fund. Stockton Libraries contributed by increasing the security of the garden and purchasing planters. With the funding an attractive outdoor reading space has been created where library users can read and enjoy when visiting the library that is also beneficial to wildlife. Before photos.......
