Geddington Brickyard Garden

Spring Launch Event

Sunday 19th April 2pm – 5pm

The organisers of the Geddington Brickyard Garden (GBG) have announced the date of the deferred opening. Planned for last autumn, the opening will now take place in Spring 2015. The extra months have given the committee time to put a lot more detail in place, both horticulturally, physically and financially.

Lynette Litman, Chairman of the organising committee, has sent details of the Launch.

“The aim of the event is to invite local people to celebrate the progress that has been made in the Community Garden so far, and to see the plans being made for the future.”

She continued: “There will be creative activities for the children to take part in on the day and we are also encouraging children to bring a recycled, planted container to be entered into a fun competition – maybe we will see some old welly boots sprouting daisies!

There will also be an opportunity to make a clay ‘bricklet’ that will be fired and made part of a mural created within the garden.

The Scouts Group will be organising homemade cakes and other refreshments for visitors.

Please note that there is no parking close to the site, so in the interests of community harmony, please think twice about whether you need a car, and there are no toilets on site either.”
