Weʼve raised £480 to create a hard pathway for the BEVERLEY PARK community garden. This will allow everyone regardless of ability or age to enjoy the garden.

Over the past year Beverley Park residents have changed what was an abandoned piece of land into the new community garden.
This has been a true success bringing neighbours together and creating a real community spirit.
The work done in the garden allowed for a Christmas event and Easter event to be held. These events were a big hit with everyone in attendance. Particularly the kids when they got a visit from Santa.
Work has continued on the garden. A lottery grant will see new gardening equipment and a new marquee being purchased. This will help with future events planned. Unfortunately due to the land being abandoned for the past 13 years we have been unable to have the necessary paperwork to allow a grant to cover the cost of a hard path.
In order that we continue to enhance and make the garden accessible to all we aim to create a block path way. This will follow this same route of the bark pathway. It will also be layed around the centre flower box. This will again let everyone experience the flowers and shrubs up close.
The community garden was recently assessed by a judicator from Beautiful Scotland. As such the garden was given an award under Your Neighbourhood. Part of the guidance to continue to enhance the garden was to create the hard pathway. This was specifically mentioned to allow wheel chair users to utilise the pathway.
In short we hope that you will donate what you can to help us reach our goal. If you are a resident the completion of a hard path will have a positive effect and make your home and estate more appealing to live and visit.
Together we can do it. Help us reach our target.

Thankyou all that have supported. Now that the news is out about creating the path we have more neighbours offering different companies / tradesmen to complete the job. This may mean the overall cost may come down. A big thanks to all that have donated and hopefully we will see further donations. Every £ counts. Thanks everyone.
