Fairy garden is just magical

If you are walking near Golborne Library, make sure you keep your eyes peeled for some very special new residents whose dream homes have been created by a team of young green-fingered volunteers!

A magical ‘Fairy Garden’ has sprung up in the library garden – and it’s the hard work of some of Golborne in Bloom’s youngest members.

The enchanting little garden has been created by Kaitlyn, 9, Layla, 7, and Erin, 8, who now hope that others will enjoy it – and be inspired to get involved themselves with the project.

The Fairy Garden includes sweet little fairy doors built into a tree trunk as well as a mini picnic table and lots of pretty butterflies – guaranteed to make any passer-by smile.

Would your children like to get involved?

To help the Fairy Garden look even nicer, your child’s creative input is needed!

If they would like to make some bright and colourful painted stones or pom-poms and bring them along to the library garden on a Thursday morning, between 9am – 12pm they can be added to the creation of a Sally Snake, whose long body will weave through the summer plants, adding even more smiles to the space.

Golborne in Bloom remain hard at work making other areas of the town look more cheerful, too.

The adult members of the group have been working in a safe and socially distanced way throughout lockdown. They have been busy painting the fence around the library and creating new flower borders.

The group have been supported by local councillors Cllr Kath Houlton, Cllr Ed Houlton and Cllr / MP James Grundy. They have sponsored Golborne In Bloom recently which has allowed the group to continue throughout the pandemic.
