Winterbourne Library’s new garden is now officially open for visitors to enjoy.

The new garden will be used as an extended library space for storytelling, outdoor crafts and play activities.

Vice-Chair of South Gloucestershire Council Cllr Katherine Morris carried out the official opening for the new garden. She said: “There has always been a patch of grass behind the library which has now been transformed. With the awarding of Section 106 monies a couple of years ago, the opportunity to create a garden became a reality and we see this space as an extension of the library – a place to relax, read, meet friends and make use of the free Wi-Fi. It’s a brilliant place for storytelling, craft and play activities, anything in fact that library users and the local community would like to see.”

Cllr Morris was joined by the Archdeacon of Malmesbury Christine Froude, library staff and members of the library users group for the garden’s officially opening on Saturday 27 June.

Winterbourne Library is on the look-out for volunteers of any age to help look after the garden and contribute ideas for using the space. Pop in to the library and talk to the staff if you would like to be involved.
