A NURSERY is appealing to the community for help to breathe new life into their garden.

Staff say the spot used to be a place where the children enjoyed playing and watching things grow.

But they say three years of rain and snow has destroyed everything in it.

Lisa Race, Kiddikins’ senior practitioner, said: The problem we face is like so many gardens we have had 3 years of rain and snow which has destroyed everything in our garden.

“When we first came here the garden had lots of things from the previous owner and we spent a lot of money on it.

“The weather has been so awful for the last few years that we really haven’t been able to go out and do anything with it.

“One parent has turned over a small area for the children to plant flowers .

“We would like someone with knowledge of plants and some help to dig and plant. Virtually everything to bring our garden back to life.

“The children like to go in it, not just to play but they like to see how things grow and learn about bug life.”

Kiddikins, based in Hindpool Close, has also been in touch with Peterlee-based East Durham and Houghall College for help to turn things around.
