A POLYTUNNEL has been donated to a community growing project so volunteers can grow even more plants.
Volunteers from the Growing Together scheme, based on Weston’s Bournville estate, accepted the 24-foot tunnel from builders merchant Travis Perkins.
The volunteers aim to grow seasonal produce and develop green spaces.
Travis Perkins’ Weston branch manager Nick Cavell and account manager Gaynor Peters visited to see the work being done.
The volunteers cooked up a feast, including homemade soups and bread.
Growing Together development worker Matt White said: “The day was a huge success and a celebration of our progress this year.”
