Dobbies garden centre in Royston has launched a project to help community groups and charities create or restore green spaces.

Anyone who has a community space that needs gardening knowledge or inspiration - whether indoors or outdoors - is invited to apply.

Applications are open at, and to be eligible projects must be within 20 miles of the Royston store.

Dobbies will then select a project to support from the nominations.

The winning group will receive products, tools and plants to help bring their community space to life during a personal shopping session with a Dobbies colleague.

There will also be volunteer hours allocated to help bring the project to fruition, and the successful applicant will receive support over the year to keep their outdoor or indoor green space blooming.


Nick Anderson, Dobbies’ operations director, said: "There are so many brilliant community groups near our Royston store – from schools and nurseries, to In Bloom Groups and charities, and even local sports teams.

"We want to hear from groups in Royston who would benefit from our support.

"If anyone knows of a community group that has a garden living project in need of our help, please encourage them to enter."
