Lynemouth Centennial Garden

A recent project delivered by the community benefit fund made available from ScottishPower Renewables’ Lynemouth Windfarm was officially opened in May 2022.

The creation of this community garden on previously derelict land is an important resource for local school children and other community members to visit, enjoy and learn about Lynemouth. The ScottishPower Renewables community team liaised with Lynemouth Parish Council during the development of the information boards in the garden that tell the story of the birth of this traditional mining village and it's evolution towards hosting green energy generation and all the benefits it brings.

Councillor Liz Dunn, Chair of Lynemouth Parish Council, said: “There have been a number of requests for such a facility by local residents. To see the ribbon cut is an important milestone. The Parish Council believes public health and well-being is very important. We are investing in leisure facilities to encourage people to get out there, be fit and be healthy and we’re grateful to ScottishPower Renewables for providing the ongoing funding to enable us to make a difference for local people and the community.”

Siobhan Jarvie, Community Liaison Officer for ScottishPower Renewables, said: “The Lynemouth Centennial Garden is a brilliant example of how local communities are using our windfarm benefit funds to deliver projects that matter to local people and we’re proud to have played our part. For us, our windfarms are not just about producing clean, green electricity – being a good neighbour and supporting our local communities is really important too and we’ve invested more than £45 million across the UK doing just that.

“The Centennial Garden is a fantastic celebration of the village’s history and heritage and creates a positive and lasting legacy that I’m sure will be enjoyed for years to come.”
