Opening Day At The Feature Garden
by Parish Council on Thursday 1 June 2017

Ideas for the garden to be sited on the former public toilets plot of land were first discussed by Council Members in November 2015.  Since then:

  • The budget was agreed and allocated
  • The designs for the garden commissioned
  • Public consultation on design has been conducted
  • The Contract for works tendered and awarded

and on 31st January 2017 Groundwork (Crestra Ltd) commenced excavating the site.

The official Opening Day will be on Saturday 22nd July 2017.

The theme of the feature is to celebrate the community by providing information on the community’s heritage; buildings and local industry.

Seating areas are important in public places and offer a place to rest for all ages.  They provide a stopping point whether it be for lunch, a rest, a place to wait and meet others or simply a place to sit.

The Council hopes that this will be a welcoming space, accessible to all. We hope that all who use the garden enjoy the surroundings.  

The Council would like to thank Tesco Bags of Help; Groundwork Creswell Ashfield & Mansfield; Crestra Ltd; MG Building Services;  M Kemp Electrical Testing Services, Ripley  and  Somercotes Local History Society for their assistance and contributions. Acanthus Stone, Somercotes, have kindly donated a stone Name Plaque to be installed in the garden.
