THE AREA’S first garden for the whole community has opened.

Springwood Community Gardens, in Springwood Avenue, Waterlooville, was created on unused land belonging to Stakes Hill Infants School.

It was opened by Councillor Ken Smith, Mayor of Havant.

Guinness Hermitage housing association, volunteers at Springwood Community Centre, parents and local residents have joined the school in landscaping the area.

It will be open to the public whenever the site manager is on the school grounds.

The public can grow fruit and vegetables and flowers or simply sit a while and relax in the peaceful surroundings.
