Clear noticeboard panes installed

The noticeboard panes, which had become almost impossible to see through because of sun damage, were replaced with beautiful, clear polycarbonate panes which this time are UV protected on both sides. The notices are now gloriously easy to read. Do come down to see them and find out what's going on in Woolston.

All work was carried out by our small team of volunteers.

Feather plinth painted

On a hot summer's day volunteers gave the feather plinth a much needed fresh coat of paint and it's now looking very smart.
Click on the link below the photo to see an image of the plinth before it was painted.

Garden featured in Radio Solent's 'Clued Up' programme!

On Saturday morning 23 April 2022 the Millennium Garden was featured on Radio Solent's 'Clued Up' programme. Listeners are given various clues and have to guess where the presenter is. The Garden was chosen for its contribution to the cultural life of Southampton as this particular episode of the programme was showcasing Southampton's bid to be the next UK City of Culture. Find the programme recording on iPlayer!

Once a month a small team of local volunteers tidy the garden and carry out any jobs that need doing but we need volunteers to litter pick and sweep the paths between times so that we can keep this garden looking great for everyone all the time.

If you can spare up to an hour of your time on a regular basis (be it once a month/fortnight/week) please call Gaynor on 023 8042 1694.

Thank you.

Woolston Millennium garden then......

Have a look at the two fascinating photographs below - one showing the present day garden site and the other superimposing the bombed out National Provincial bank onto the present day view. As you can see in the present day photo, an ornamental pier from the old bank still exists. The images are courtesy of Mike Johnson.
For a better view, go to our Picture Gallery page and click on the images.
