Help Erlas Victorian Walled Garden grow a future!

Recent successes have meant that we can now fully commit ourselves to the further development of our wonderful site. We want that future to be built on:

• Broadening the offer we are able to make to those with personal challenges of all types; especially those with learning disabilities. This might include new training courses, new work experience, new personal development opportunities or increased day care facilities.
• Opening the site to wider community access; especially those with an interest in ecology, environment, history and natural produce. This might include new site attractions, new opening hours or new facilities.
• Including more people; especially those who value the Garden’s character, setting and position. This might include other charities, educators, health/care providers, voluntary groups, clubs, societies, shoppers, families, etc!

We could win up to £4000, if we are the most popular charity to be voted for. Please go to to make us your cause.

Then you place the token in the ‘box’ for Erlas Victorian Walled Garden. 1st prize is £4000, 2nd prize is £2000, 3rd Prize is £1,000.

Fingers crossed and “Thankyou” to all.
