Two Uckfield community gardens are peaceful havens for nearby residents while looking competely different.
Selby Meadow off Selby Road, which held an open day yesterday, is a woodland garden with mature, trees, hedges and wild flowers, and different areas for children to seek out and enjoy.
There’s a totem pole, a fairy circle with logs for children to sit on and a new musical area which replaces a children’s play house destroyed by fire earlier this year.
At Keld Close, where the community garden only opened in September the more traditional flower garden is becoming established.
During yesterday’s open day at Selby Meadow, where funds were raised for the Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice, home-made cakes were among refreshments, and there were stalls offeriing activities for children and with goods and plants for sale.
Some of the stallholders are pictured below:
Below are pictures from the Keld Close garden where the gate is opened each day for visitors to wander round or sit and enjoy the atmosphere.
