Project Details

A plot left derelict for 15 years is to become a wildlife garden for children and residents in Mexborough. It is intended to strengthen community cohesion in an area that has had its share of problems and will be a welcome oasis of wildlife and greenery in a largely built up area. The group has been used as a case-study of what can be achieved when communities get behind this kind of initiative and it is has become a model of trans-generational co-operation. An It’s Your Community award will enable them to buy a hedgerow, trees, benches and a pond. We've been told that “the kids are just waiting for it all to happen.” It’s Your Community is delighted to help this community project achieve its next stage.
