Groundwork UK have just announced that they will treble the £5000 we raised this summer for our Treasured Spaces Appeal where previously they had agreed to match and double the money. So where before we had £15,000 to invest in our refurbishments of the Triangle Garden central meeting space, we now have £20,000.
The refurbished area will have new paving, new raised beds with integral seating, a new pollinators’ garden, new pergolas and a new temporary shade sail to create an outdoor classroom when needed. Work on the ground is due to be carried out in spring/summer 2015. Big thanks go to all who helped us to raise the £5000 last summer particularly the residents of Benslow who donated the money raised from their Open Gardens event in May.
The Garden committee is busy coming up with planting designs for the new pollinators’ garden around the central meeting space, and the mosiac panels for the centre are almost complete thanks to community mosaic artist Jane Visick. Jane hosted a series of practical mosiac making workshops adapting designs created by various groups affiliated with the Triangle Garden, to produce a stunning nine panel design which will replace the existing circular panel (shown above).
