Opening of The Carterton Community Family Garden

On Friday 26 May 2023, Members, Officers, and members of the public welcomed the Lord Lieutenant Mrs Marjorie Glasgow BEM to officially open the garden.

She began her visit with a tour of St John’s Primary School and was then joined by some of the pupils to scatter some wild seeds and open the garden, with a few words about the importance of community and having somewhere to sit and enjoy a peaceful place and enjoy nature.

Before heading off, she toured the food bank situated at the Community Centre and enjoyed light refreshments.

From a messy wasteland site to a beautiful garden for residents to enjoy.
