At the end of a spectaculary rainy week, the Byker Ward Committee has awarded St. Peter's Neighbourhood Association with a Ward-aid grant from Newcastle City Council to help the neighbourhood's plants flourish.

St. Peter's Volunteer Gardeners are going to use the money to buy water-butts and save and manage rainwater for plant-watering.  Whilst a new hose will make the conventional watering of beds around the St. Peter's neighbourhood a great deal easier.
