We have a team of people who have adopted several of their local community planters and work to maintain them – if you want more information on how to do this please email us
Periodically we have gardening days with children to get them involved in understanding plants and wildlife. Watch the website and notice boards
In-depth works. Several projects have been carried out on the pond and Swales (the central watercourse). This, of course, should be the task of the ground maintenance team, there has been some neglect by them in doing this.
