Walled Garden - A Happy Place!

Walled Garden - A Happy Place!

As work continues in the Walled Garden to construct the new Community Learning Pavilion, it is worth reflecting on the happiness that walled gardens seem to create!

 

10.06.2014

Happiness is an important part of life and our work often involves an element of bringing people together in a happy place - the Museum.  

What has struck us during the Walled Garden Project is the warm and happy outlook that people have when working in the Garden.  This is true of our hard working volunteers but is equally true of our Contractors.

The are probably many reasons why people seem happy in the Walled Garden.  It could be that the enclosed and protective space gives a sense of safety? It could equally be just the exciting nature of the project?  Or, it could even be the way the Garden creates its own atmosphere?  Whatever the reason it is clear that the Walled Garden will play an important role in ensuring the Museum remains a happy place to work and visit.  We look forward to sharing more of this with you soon!
