A new gardening group which aims to bring women from different communities together is being held in Thetford.

Urbagri4women is being run by GYROS, a migrant support charity based in Great Yarmouth, and is being supported by Thetford-based charity Keystone Development Trust.

The project aims to bring women together to engage in gardening as a social enterprise, with a training programme embedded.

All are welcome to join the group, and Urbagri4women are particularly looking to work with members of the town’s migrant communities.

The group is part of a larger international project co-funded by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund of the European Union.

Sessions will run from 10am until 2pm every Friday at Riversdale Centre and will include lunch.

For more information call 01842 764647 or visit Riversdale Centre on Facebook.
