WTC proudly support Whitworth Libray's Seed Swap Project

The green-figured children who attend Whitworth Library’s gardening and craft club on a Saturday morning have come up with a fantastic initiative that Whitworth Town Council were proud to support. Their plan was to start a Seed Swap project in the town, and the Town Council kindly agreed a donation to start them on their way. This enabled the children, facilitated by the Friends of Whitworth Library community group, to purchase some environmentally friendly drawers (which the children have beautifully decorated) and some seeds to start the project off. All residents are welcome to visit the library and donate more seeds to the project, or to take some of those that have already been kindly donated, both by the Council and generous residents. Whitworth Town Council send their best wishes to the project and look forward to seeing the fruits of the children’s labours growing soon.
