We'd love for you to come and visit the garden! You can find it at the Heritage Hub, Clarence Row. The site is open between 9 and 5 every weekday. Drop in on your way into town; grab a takeaway coffee and relax on one of our benches; you can even play some of our garden games - anyone for giant Jenga? There's lots to see including a wildlife pond, wildflower meadow, beehives, and some amazing original art.
