Group of volunteers give vibrant new look to Rainbow Centre in Rose Street, Northfleet

A group of volunteers gave a community centre a vibrant new look.

In partnership with No Walls Gardens, a group of more than 20 volunteers from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints created a brightly coloured display in the flower bed at the front of the Rainbow Centre in Rose Street, Northfleet.

The project came about when church members contacted North West Kent Volunteer Centre looking for a one-off event they could be involved in locally.

No Walls director Peter Scollard said: “It was important to the volunteers that the project benefited the environment and local community.

“The Volunteer Centre contacted No Walls Gardens in its search for a suitable project, and the rainbow flower display idea started to grow.”

The project was funded by a grant from Gravesham council’s Communities And Neighbourhoods Fund, which supports those who want to make positive change to their area.

Volunteer Centre development officer Sharyn Etherington said: “We are delighted to have been able to put these two organisations together to work on this unique project and beautiful display.”
