Garden helpers' pasty incentive
Royal Albert Bridge in Saltash.
The finished gardens will have views of the Tamar Estuary
Free pasties will be on offer this weekend for volunteers working to transform an area of land under the Royal Albert Bridge in Saltash.

The area will become the Huntley Community Gardens and it is hoped the scheme could benefit the whole area.

The Saltash Waterfront Residents Association has secured 8,700 in funding to get the scheme started.

On Saturday tree surgeons will start to clear dense undergrowth with help from local volunteers and the youth club.

The finished gardens will have views of the Tamar Estuary and it is hoped they will benefit elderly and disabled residents in nearby council accommodation.

Town Councillor Joe Ellison said: "The vision of the community garden came from Saltash Waterfront Residents Association as part of a continuing effort to regenerate the waterside area for both residents and visitors. "

Pasty firm Ginsters has provided pasties for the volunteers taking part on Saturday.
