Project: Restoring Hillsborough Park Walled Garden
Nominated by: The Park in Wadsley Bridge, Sheffield
Total Investment: £3,170
The Hillsborough Park Walled Garden is located within the grounds of Hillsborough Park. It is owned by the council, but due to cuts in funding the day-to-day responsibility of maintaining the garden lies with the ‘Friends of Hillsborough Park’ volunteer group. The garden and the park are actively used by the local community, hosting regular walking groups, churchgoers and wildlife conservation projects.
The funds raised have been used to help restore the raised beds located throughout the garden. Natalie, from The Park and the Project Champion also helped to organise a volunteering day to help repair the beds and plant flowers.
Quite simply, we couldn’t have achieved any of this without the help of our Sizzling guests! Visit us today to see what else is going on.
