The six brick planters between the aviaries and the main children’s play area have been cleared by the Green Space Volunteers and will be covered in black plastic sheeting to kill off weeds before planting out next winter and spring. Design of the planting and information boards is underway. An advertisement has been placed in the ART e- bulletin (this is for local artists) inviting them to submit ideas for an artwork commission to enhance the garden and make it interesting and fun for children and their families.
