Community Garden Spring Fair raises £2,000 for projects

THE Golden Hill Community Garden Spring Fair was a great success.

Nearly 800 people came along on a gloriously sunny day to buy plants, listen to live music, eat pizza and cake and take part in the many activities for children.

Over £2,000 was raised which will help continue the community work and projects that the garden undertakes.

If you missed the Fair or would like to visit the garden again soon, they will be part of the citywide Get Growing Trail on June 4, between 11am and 3pm.

This will be a perfect opportunity to volunteer in the garden and visit the Bishopston Bale House, the on site straw bale building which is available to hire for workshops, community groups and meetings.

The Garden is also open to the public or volunteers every Wednesday between 10am and 4pm.
