Our volunteers

Thank you Mel

From Summer 2018 Mel has helped us week after week and in all weathers with all sorts of gardening duties and is a tremendous asset and a dear friend to all of us at SSTH,

Thank you Laurie

Laurie is a dear friend to us at SSTH helping out an a number of projects including setting up for our NGS Open Days in 2018 and 2019

Thank you 3M Newton Aycliffe

In May 2018 a gallant group of volunteers from 3M Newton Aycliffe, spent a day at Woodside. Amongst other things they erected the two high raised beds and much home made chocolate cup cake was consumed!

From our gallery of photos you can see how much these beds have been used.

In Spring 2019, 3M Newton Aycliffe and Darlington Rotary 'Hit Squad' further helped develop a long raised bed and an additional pathway through the woods, as well as re painting the workshop.

Thank you Darlington Rotary

By Autumn 2019 the fence rail frames of our low raised beds installed by Mike and Satinder 13 years ago, were on their last legs. Darlington Rotary Hit Squad kindly returned to replace these with more robust construction timber frames.
