Shotley Bridge Junior School were nominated by the Village Trust to accept tubs from the HAGGRID Project (Horticulture, Agriculture, General Education and Individual Development).  The Derwent Valley Partnership has supported this local project at Consett and Blackhill Park, which has provided an opportunity for young people aged between 11 and 18 to learn a range of environmental based skills with the aim of getting them involved in local community-based activities.

The tubs were presented yesterday by students from Consett Academy, who helped plant them up. They will brighten up the main entrance to the school and will be maintained by pupils there.

Police in Consett have given pots, compost and other equipment seized from drugs farms to community projects in the area. The Haggrid and Eddy groups, which work with young people in the town, are using  them to help improve the local area. For more information about the project, take a look at  this news article in The Chronicle.
