Over the last couple of years our garden team of staff and volunteers have been working extra hard to finish a number of structural features thanks to funding from the NE Local Enterprise Partnership. This injection of capital funds has enabled us to make a number of significant improvements including a fantastic new dipping pond, accessible raised beds, wildflower meadow and in a few years time we'll be able to see a small native woodland opposite the metro station.

We'd love to welcome local people to look around the gardens as part of our forthcoming Platinum Jubilee Garden Party which takes place on Tuesday 31st May between 12noon and 3pm.

There'll be a small exhibition showing the before and after pictures of the garden along with activities, music and food.

If 31st May isn't convenient for you then you can pop down any day Monday to Thursday between 9.30am and 4.00pm and our friendly team will be happy to show you around.
