About us

The Secret Garden Project is a community-based initiative, run by volunteers from the Community Matters group set-up in 2015.  Our aims are to bring the community together, promote wellbeing and combat loneliness through the rejuvenation of Newbury Lock Island (The ‘Globe Garden’); creating a space which enables environmental education and promotes community through gardening and activities.

This garden is situated in a heritage area of Newbury and will incorporate a meditation/quiet space (around the graves of John & Wyn Gould), a cottage sensory garden full of tactile & scented planting, a kitchen & herb garden with disabled access, a seated vista garden with views to St Nicolas church & Newbury bridge, a coppice and a lock-side history garden.

Our plans involve inclusion of a wide range of local art, including sculptures, interactive poetry and sensory games, developed for and in many cases by local children and adult support groups.  The garden will also contain historical information on the Kennet & Avon canal and celebrate John Gould’s instrumental role in its restoration.

However, we need your help and generosity so we can purchase materials, plants and tools to realise our vision for this new outdoor community centre.  Our team of volunteers will undertake most of the work involved, a project built by the community for the community.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely,

Sukey Russell-Hayward & the Community Matters team
