We’re trying to encourage the transformation of a piece of land, once plagued by anti-social behaviour and dereliction into something wonderful, that will help (I firmly believe) transform people’s lives.

The belief comes from experience of the garden at Western Library on the Boulevard in Hull. Similar story; a derelict piece of land, anti-social behaviour, people had had enough! A constituted community group was formed of local resident...s, parents, volunteers…they applied for funding and now the garden is thriving…and even has a cob oven for baking and pizza…and much more, as you can see from the Friends Of Western Library Facebook page here;

I know we can replicate this at Greenwood Avenue Library, because the case is strong. It would be a shame to miss the opportunity to enliven a library and make it more magical for children and families and indeed the whole community.

We have an informal drop-in event on Friday 6th April, 2-4pm at Greenwood Avenue Library, 220 Greenwood Avenue, Hull HU6 9RU.

We’d be very grateful if you could spread the word to parents, families anyone in the community who may be interested.

Thank you, and best wishes!
