A new project in a county village is causing a big buzz.
Works are being carried out at one of the Pegswood Allotment plots to create a dedicated beekeeping garden. The infrastructure is now 90 per cent complete and members of the public can get involved when the scheme is ready.
The Groundwork North East organisation contributed £2,000 towards the cost of labour and materials for phase one of the project. Materials have also been provided by Pegswood Allotment Association and its committee members have assisted the Groundwork team.
