The Maltings theatre has allowed the organisation to clear this site and plant it to make the centenary garden.

The cub scouts have done nearly all the work over the last four weeks.

“It is very much their garden,” said group leader Anne Forbes.

However, some help has also been provided which was much appreciated.

“Coun Alex Gibson, of Berwick Town Council, has supported and encouraged us on this project; Lee Walker, at Wheeleigh Clean, did a great job of cleaning the site for us; and we’d like to thank Barry Allison for his kind donation.

“We hope that the garden will be used by everyone.”

Mayor Gregah Roughead and Sheriff Liam Mutch kindly attended and cut the ribbon to officially open the garden.

Refreshments were enjoyed afterwards in King James Court on West Street.

The 5th Berwick Cub Scouts is the only scout group in the town. It is open to boys and girls. It is entirely run by volunteers and operates from the Scout Hall in Palace Green.
