An update on our Garden Borders

In our last newsletter, we updated you on the borders of the Abbey Gardens which have undergone a series of renovation and redesign work. This spring, we’re pleased to say we’ll be undertaking a special project to transform the Medics border into a new, wildly colourful rainbow-themed arrangement, to honour the bravery of our NHS heroes, and remember the victims of Covid.

You can also expect our North Wall border and Grassy border in the Main Car Park to be replanted with luscious greenery in time for spring and summer visits. As for our Northgate building, its border will be transformed into a beautiful cut flower bed and fragrant herb trough.
