Incredible Edible invited the public to a Christmas party at its community garden in Dunstable on Saturday.

The team of volunteers, led by Sahira Ward, created the garden for the community at Katherine Drive in 2103.

Amazon gave the team a community shed after a local resident told them about the project.

Sahira organised the event to encourage the community to help decorate the shed and get in the Christmas spirit.

The team were joined by Dunstable Town Mayor, Councillor Terry Stock.

She said: “For all the people that came to our party I would like to thank them from the bottom of my heart because they made our event very special.

“I would like to thank all our incredible volunteers for all their hard work throughout the year and Terry Stock, the town mayor, for officially opening the shed.

“We had a lot of help. I want to thank the Air Cadets for helping to tidy up the car park, Amazon for the shed, The Curry Garden for the onion bhajis, the Co op for their hospitality to our special guest and Nike Newsagents for the Christmas tags.”

Sweet Pea Garden Services provided them with a tree and decorations were donated by visitors.

Santa made a visit to the garden to meet the children and he read out messages that had been placed in the garden.

But since the weekend, Sahira has reported two incidents of vandalism to the police. She said: “Because of the trouble with the vandalism from certain people we are fearful to put any tools in our shed so it stands empty.

“I would like to make an appeal to the people of this estate to keep a watch out for our garden and the shed and report any criminal damage to the police.”

The public are invited to come to the garden at the next event on Saturday, January 3, from 11am till 1pm.
