The ‘Art in the Garden’ event in July was a great success, and the result is now visible on the Common Growth fence on Sandbourne Rd! All the beautifull letters and flowers that were painted by children and adults alike have transformed the entrance to our community garden.
Hopefully our new ‘look’ will inspire many more enthusiastic gardeners to come and help out in the garden 🙂
We now have a bounty of delicious vegetables growing in the raised beds. Come and claim your rewards for an aftenoon of helping out in the garden. There is always plenty to do!
This short presentation by Kath Dunbar (New Cross Learning co-chair) and Catherine Shovlin (Bold Vision) at The Funding Network raised over £5000 for New Cross Learning allowing us to finish the artwork on the front of the library, run the first New Cross street party in years and buy a projector for community film screenings.
If you were at the Bold Vision AGM or havbe been involved with the community garden on Arica Road, you may have already come across the impressive Sachen Whyte. And now Sachen as been shortlisted for the Inspirational Tenant of the Year at this year’s Housing Heroes Awards for his work at MacMillan House funded and supported by Lewisham Homes.
