This initiative has led to the redesign and replanting of the garden areas around the library building in the centre of Long Buckby.

Grants to support the development were awarded by Anglian Water Positive Difference Fund, Nineveh Trust, the People’s Postcode Lottery Neighbourhood Trust and the Finnis Scott Foundation.

Members of Long Buckby’s Gardening Club helped to prepare and plant the Market Place and car park areas, while library volunteers put up an all-weather gazebo in the courtyard garden..
