Today, I visited the community garden and viewpoint on Hamilton Drive. It was wonderful to find the wide range of flowers, rhubarb and fruit bushes being tended by local residents.

This is a much needed open space where residents can get involved in gardening and give support to pollinators including bees and butterflies. It is a quiet area for reading, writing and outdoor learning. During the Covid-19 pandemic, access to this community garden has been essential to promote the mental health and general wellbeing of residents staying at home as well as key workers.
