Organisations which have backed a garden project for people with learning disabilities have been invited to a celebration of its success.

The vegetable garden was established 18 months ago at the Bargroves Centre in St Neots, by Cambridgeshire County Council Community Education Tutor Anne Tubridy and it has now been entered for the Anglia In Bloom competition.

The Tea Party on July 12, from 1.30-3.00 pm has two main purposes - to celebrate the achievements and hard work of the learners in running and maintaining the garden and to raise funds to sustain and expand the project.

Guests will include St Neots Town Council, Muir Housing Association, Lloyds TSB bank and individual friends of the project. The event will include a raffle, sponsor a sunflower competition and the chance to buy some of the produce.
