A community garden in Hitchin is launching a fundraising appeal for a new tool shed to aid a team of gardeners who have learning difficulties.

Volunteers at the Triangle Community Garden at the town’s Ransom’s recreation ground are raising money for a team of adults challenged with learning disabilities.

Trustee Vicky Wyer said: “We’ve just acquired a new allotment next to our current one for our Growing Ability team, and it’d be great if we could get a new tool shed for them to use.

“We need somewhere for our gardeners to be able to work when it’s raining or very hot.

“Currently, with these type of conditions the team has to work in the pavilion on planning and other indoor activities.

“To be able to work in all weathers would greatly extend what we can offer our gardeners in the way of activities.

“Having a new tool shed will also allow us to store bulky items such as wheelbarrows out of the rain.
