A BENCH has been moved to an urban park in Abergavenny thanks to help from a community group.

It has been moved to Linda Vista Gardens by the Greenfingers project. It was carved from wood by sculptor Neil Gow from a cedar tree that fell in the gardens, and was previously kept at Coes Glas.

Enablement officer Gareth Jones said: “Linda Vista Gardens is a beautiful, public park and this is a fantastic addition to it.

“I would like to applaud the hard work of the Greenfingers crew, without whom, this bench would not be here. They are an incredibly dedicated bunch, who work diligently to improve the local environment.

“The gardens are a safe area for children to play and are a wonderful asset to the town. I’m sure the bench will be fondly enjoyed by visitors, who can sit here and enjoy beautiful views of the gardens, River Usk and the Blorenge.”

Greenfingers is an arm of the My Day My Life initiative, which supports people to learn new skills. For more information on it, contact 01873 854489.
