Digging Deeside the Connah’s Quay allotment based gardening project was a hive of activity earlier this week when over 30 people attended the grand opening of the new secure metal tool shed.

The project run by local social enterprise Rainbow Bizz had been hit by a series of thefts from the Mill Lane Allotments and appealed to local businesses for help in finding secure storage for tools.

Town and Country Property Services in Shotton and Commercial Kitchen Specialists donated towards the cost of the new shed which was delivered last week to the project.  

RainbowBiz’s Patron, the Rt Hon Lord Barry Jones cut the rainbow raffia with a pair of gardening shears to formally open the shed.  

Sarah Way, project coordinator at Digging Deeside said:

It was a lovely event, the sun shone and our volunteers really appreciated all the support given by our Patron Lord Barry Jones, the Deeside community and local businesses through these incredible donations, by coming along to this event and by encouraging and thanking all our volunteers for all the hard work they do.

Digging Deeside is a weekly project which meets every Tuesday morning between 10am and 12pm at Mill Lane Allotments in Connah’s Quay behind the job centre.  For more information email or call 07759 753473
