Members of the New Century Lions Club of East Anglia spent 18 months at Treetops in Claydon repairing and decorating the site.

The project was originally conceived as part of Lions International’s Centenary celebrations back in 2016 where local groups were encouraged to make a difference in the community.

The garden needed a considerable amount of structural and decorative changes with new raised beds being created, trees being cut back and fences being repaired.

Up to 20 people worked on the garden at one time with project manager Chris Pearson visiting the site every Saturday.

Chris said that the time put in was worth it; “They were so pleased with what we did. It was wonderful.

“I am immensely proud of the team of helpers who made this garden possible.”
