THE PARISH COUNCIL has constructed a Centennial Nature Garden to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the Ashington Coal Company building a modern mining village in Lynemouth in 1921. The garden will be officially unveiled on Thursday 5th May 2022 at 2:00 p.m. on the site of a former scout hut in Boland Road. The derelict wasteland has been converted into a pleasant relaxing area with timber benches and information boards which will begin with the story of how the village was established over 100 years ago. The plants chosen are low maintenance and will look very well when in flower as follows: Aucuba Japonica Rozannie; Brachylottis monroi; Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus; Spirea japonica. The total cost of the project is £31,609 funded from the money ScottishPower Renewables pays into a wind turbine fund managed by the Parish Council and distributed for local projects and regeneration, with the Parish Council making up the shortfall not covered by grant aid. The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Fund awarded £166.66 towards a commemorative stone to mark the Platinum Jubilee.
