BALI members have rebuilt a garden at Glenridding Hotel in Cumbria, which was wrecked by floods caused by Storm Desmond in December 2015.

BALI affiliate member Johnsons of Whixley donated £1,000 worth of plants to the hotel.

Director Andrew Richardson said "Johnsons of Whixley were delighted to have been involved supporting the BALI project with supplying nursery stock for the new beer garden."

He added: "Last year we were supposed to have the BALI NE/Yorks Xmas do at Glenridding. On the day we were meant to be there it was flooded. I think that we were all shocked by the images of the hotel on the TV, we all agreed when the time right help the hotel if we could."
Green-tech donated all the dressing compost and bark, while CED Stone Group provided decking materials.

Lindum Turf, Brambledown Landscapes, Grace Landscapes and other non-BALI members helped.

The project was designed and managed by designer and contractor Peter Cunliffe from Northumbrian Landscaping. BALI media sales and sponsorship officer Diane McCulloch helped facilitate the redevelopment of the garden.

The hotel is set to re-open on 15 October.
