THE SYCAMORE COMMUNITY GARDENS OPENING DAY, SEPTEMBER 1st



(This diary entry was originally published on 20th June and revised and re-published on 23rd August  and 1st September 2012)

(ARCHIVE VERSION)

The Sycamore Community Gardens in Warmingham Lane, which were originally due to be opened in June,  were eventually opened on Saturday September 1st at 2pm. The opening ceremony was performed by Deputy Town Mayor Bernice Walmsley.
.......................................................................................
As the name implies, this is a community initiative which has turned what was just a piece of waste ground into a beautiful garden for the benefit of pensioners living in the adjacent houses.
The main instigators of the scheme were Kath and Barry Walklate, themselves pensioners, who have been delighted with the help and support they have received, not least from the now  retired Assistant Town Clerk Stephen Dent who helped them obtain funding from the Big Lottery Fund via the Community Pride Group.
The grand opening  featured stalls, a tombola and live music.
The opening was based around no. 44 Warmingham Lane.
We'd like to congratulate everyone concerned with this wonderful project, not least Kath and Barry who have put many hours of unpaid hard work into it.
