Staff from around Cobalt Business Park have been helping plant a new herb bed at North Tyneside Council’s HQ.

The raised area has been created by Bowman Kirkland building company, with the herbs – including thyme, mint, sage, rosemary, marjoram and oregano – donated by Gosforth Garden Centre.

Once grown, the herbs will be used by the restaurant at the Quadrant headquarters with any extra available to staff.

As well as helping plant the herbs, staff from across the business park received lessons in how to plant, look after and use their own herbs.

Everyone who took part received a free potted herb while children received goodie bags.

Amy Carroll, events manager at Cobalt, said: “This is another great opportunity for our business community to get together, whilst learning new skills.”
