Spring has arrived in style at a Steyning car park as green-fingered volunteers spruced up its flower beds.

The two raised beds in Fletchers Croft car park have been transformed with the help of members of the Steyning U3A Gardening Group and Mayberry Garden Centre, Portslade.

The gardening group took on the challenge in September to transform the poorly maintained beds.

Thanks to the team of four volunteers and a large donation of plants from the garden centre the area has undergone a makeover and has been well received by residents.

Mayberry Garden Centre’s retail manager Martin Barrett also gave a helping hand last week. He said: “Being a family business, supporting and being involved in the local community is very important to us. We like projects that can be enjoyed by our customers, and this group is a perfect example of this.”

Val Booker from the U3A Gardening Group said: “As a small group to receive a donation as generous as this has been brilliant.”
