One Big Garden Bensham

The Best of Bensham Collaborative consists of over 20 community-based organisations, who between them provide support for many of the needs and interests in the Bensham & Saltwell area. The Collaborative is stronger together and between the members we believe we can provide support to meet the needs and aspirations of people who live in Bensham. Central to this is the participation of local people. Our newest project is termed “One big garden Bensham”.
