Children look behind Welwyn Garden City Sainsbury’s build

SUPERMARKET developers have opened their doors to youngsters to show them how WGC’s new store is taking shape.

With building work now well under way and a viewing platform in place, Parkway pre-school children and their parents were given a tour of the site.

The interest in the new Sainsbury’s store among the younger generation is growing, with a second group from the pre-school and a scout troop also taking a tour last week to see the heavy machines and cranes in action.

? Sainsbury’s is also getting involved in the area directly affected by the construction by funding a raised brick-based garden and allotment bed at the Free Church on Church Road.

With help from volunteers at YMCA Training, Space and the church, the bed will allow all members of community the chance to participate as they will be accessible to wheelchair users as well as those who have less mobility.

Sainsbury’s project manager Paul Tyler said: “I’m delighted we are working with YMCA Training, YMCA Space and the Free Church to get new and improved planted gardens.

“Sainsbury’s is keen to keep the community involved and fully briefed on how the new store is progressing.”
