Commonwealth Memorial Garden Plans
Plans for our Commonwealth Memorial Garden are moving forward.
The Trust has submitted an application to the Greener City Fund Community Green Space Grants, for Phase 1 works for the Commonwealth Memorial Garden.This will involve the landscaping of the land to the north east of the Church bordering Woolwich New Road, the creation of an African Meadow and the construction of a stage with raked stone seating. There will be planting of new trees around the perimeter. The recent fall of a large beech tree has opened up light into this section and will allow for 8 semi-mature trees to be planted. The site of the garden is heavily impacted by issues of air quality from the South Circular Road. The project will replicate the Council’s Pocket Park initiative and make the area a good place to walk, meet, play and relax. The attached drawing shows in more detail the precise specification of the design.
