Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

Grow Speke

Community garden in South Liverpool.

The project has transformed a derelict wasteland into a thriving community garden.

It’s a place where you can make new friends, learn new skills and improve your health and wellbeing. It’s free, everyone is welcome and you can drop in for as little or as long as you like.

Some of the fruit and veg grown on site is donated to local people and their families. The rest is taken home by the volunteers themselves and eaten at home. We’ve recently installed some bee hives which is helping to protect the local bee population and
will soon be producing our own honey.

Get involved

You don’t need to be interested in gardening or have any skills to get involved. We’ll provide all of the equipment and some refreshments. There is also a toilet, wash hand basin, kitchen and a place to change on site.

Regular visitors to Grow Speke include local residents, schools, businesses and community groups.  There are outdoor learning sessions for schoolchildren, where they can learn all about bushcraft and how food is grown.  We also work with local businesses
who want to give something back to the local community.

Throughout the year Grow Speke hosts celebration events and arts and crafts workshops that are free to attend.
