A COMMUNITY garden team is expanding thanks to support from a national charity.

The garden maintenance team at local charity Blyth Star Enterprises has grown since winning money from the ITV’s People’s Millions competition.

The money was used to buy a new truck and gardening equipment.

Neil Hedley, from the charity, said: “The response has increased our number of customers and we have doubled our team to cover Wansbeck as well.

“Both teams are now based at Stakeford Nurseries.

“This has created new jobs and more work experience, and we are now open daily to sell our plants and vegetables.”
