Walled Garden - building work to start
All those associated with the Walled Garden Project are extremely excited as the building work to construct the new Community Learning Pavilion starts today (6th May 2014).
The Community Learning Pavilion (or Pavilion for short) is the flagship of the Walled Garden Project, and is being funded largely by a grant from the Gloucestershire Environmental Trust with landfill tax contributions from Cory Environmental.
There has been a lot of hard work and support from many people to get to this point. The project is being managed by the Museum team with the Friends of the Museum. David Austin and Associates, Nailsworth are the architects leading the Design Team and building process. DJP Construction are the building contractor.
In the meantime, the volunteers continue to work in the south west area of the garden and need your vote to complete this work (voting ends 30th May 2014), see: http://www.museuminthepark.org.uk/blog-article/25
February's blog dealt with why this facility is needed and can be read here: http://www.museuminthepark.org.uk/blog-article/22/
