The transformation in the garden behind the Town Hall is a delight to see. Last October, the Town Council engaged Charlie Narewski Scullion to create a beautiful and wildlife friendly area that could be enjoyed by members of the public and provide habitat for insects, birds, amphibians and reptiles. Since then he has been working hard, first alone and now with people from the Veterans Farm-Able Foundation, clearing rubbish, creating ponds, building insect shelters and planting wildflowers.
The Wildspace Garden is still a work in progress. Once complete, it will be open to the public for quiet enjoyment (subject to COVID regulations) at certain times during the day. Opening times will be publicised once confirmed.
