The finished result.

IN PICTURES: Newby and Scalby Library Garden's new look

The garden was made possible by a £18,900 grant from the National Lottery People's Projects.

Newby and Scalby Library’s Community Garden was officially opened by Mrs Barbara Gardiner, a member of the library for over 55 years, helped by Isla Webb, one of the library’s many young members. The garden has a patio, yellow brick road leading past a fairy garden to an outdoor classroom, a raised flowerbed, plenty of seating, a sheltered area, and homes for birds and bugs.
