The garden at St John the Baptist Church in Farley, Luton, is about to blossom – thanks to a group of Luton volunteers.

The charity Groundwork Luton & Bedfordshire is running Green Skills, a six-week employment course that will help a number of volunteers take their first steps back into work, education or training.

The project will allow them to gain valuable qualifications and learn practical skills while creating a space for the community to enjoy.
