Creating a Garden for All
Making Beechwood Blossom is a local project to turn an inaccessible formal garden into a vibrant, wildlife-rich, place for our residents to enjoy!

Garden Launch July 2016
The Official Opening of the Wildlife Garden
July 15th 2016
The garden that was built for the Victorian owners of Beechwood, was no longer suitable for meeting the leisure needs of wheelchair users who want to access greenspace and experience nature.

Our partnership of businesses, organisations and local people have done a tremendous job in revitalising the garden.

The garden is now officially open, but we can always make good use of donations to make additional improvement to the garden.
