The small band of community volunteers responsible for managing and bringing this project to fruition is pleased to report that it was recently successful in attracting funds from Tesco’s ‘Bags of Help’ scheme, as well as being awarded a generous grant from the Town Council. This means that it is nearing its target of funding with which to complete the project.

The final phase involves the construction and planting of a large raised bed, with a heritage-themed centre piece, and installing a further three memorial benches. This transformed public space between the Library and Priorslegh will then become a colourful and restful community asset in the centre of Poynton for all to enjoy. It is planned to finish the garden this Autumn – any donations towards this last phase and for ongoing maintenance would be very welcome! Please e-mail Di Penny at if you are able to help.
