Award winning community garden established in 1997 by local residents with the help of many other supporters including "The Land is Ours". Provides a focal point for activities and has enhanced community spirit and the quality of living in the area. The garden also makes a very pleasant show of appropriate landscaping within the overall pattern of extremely narrow roads and small buildings. There is an 'Open Day' in June every year with cake and plant stalls, and a raffle.
