Friends of Leigh Library Gardens celebrate children’s art project

Friends of Leigh Library Gardens continues to go from strength to strength with new projects, new volunteers and new collaborations.

The easing of COVID restrictions has seen more volunteers coming forward to take part in the weekly work sessions with lots of young children joining their parents over the summer months. The community arts project for children during the summer holidays was also a roaring success

Thanks to a grant from Leigh Town Council, the Friends, in collaboration with Create98, held a community arts event for local children each Wednesday during August.

They were invited to paint their own nature inspired designs on tiles which will be mounted on boards and displayed in the gardens.

Valerie Morgan, chair of the friends said “A huge thank you to Create 98 who volunteered their services to the Friends of Leigh Library Gardens to run this very successful event and to Leigh Town Council for enabling it through their funding.

“Thank you also to all the children of Leigh who took part.”
