EVWG hosted 5 consultation sessions between Saturday 22nd and Saturday 29th October, when 40 members of our local communities visited the gardens, were shown a video, and were able to talk to a Director about the Charity’s ambitious plans to further develop the gardens and encourage a wider community involvement. If successful in the second stage application of the Create Your Space Programme, then our communities will be consulted throughout the 5 year development, which will cost between £1.6 and £2 million.
The feedback we received from new visitors was positive, encouraging and supportive, with a few suggestions on improving our plans. Thank you to everyone who came, including Lesley, who is our patron and long standing supporter of EVWG.
