Friends of Barshaw Park
The group's project is to restore, maintain and improve the historic Walled Garden within the grounds of Barshaw Park. The garden ceased to be maintained by the local authority several years ago and was close to becoming overgrown and dilapidated. In the three years since the project began, volunteers have made great progress and the garden has regained much of its beauty. The group has secured funding this year which will enable it to obtain secure storage for tools, buy new plants, compost and equipment, and restore and add some design features.
