Culture & Community Acvity Grant


The Art in the Garden project was launched during the Lymington Arts Fesval in July 2015 with the aid of a Hampshire County Council Culture and Community Acvity Grant. It involved an installaon of flowers, made from recycled materials, by local community groups and individuals. At the opening of the Fesval, Cllr. Michael White helped with the ‘planng’ of these flowers in the Lymington United Reformed Church garden. These flowers remained in the garden for several weeks for the local community to enjoy.


Groups involved were: adult educaon learners from Brockenhurst College, Fusee House in New Milton, Lile Explorers from the LURC, 1st Tiptoe Brownies, WilliamGilpin School, Hordle Guides and Milford Buerflies. Pamela Oaksha and Helen Talbot gave workshops to help the children create their flowers, using plasc drinks boles, yoghurt cartons and any other plasc items that would have normally been recycled.


The flowers will be on display at Oakhaven Hospice over Easter. Stephanie Reynolds, Educaon Facilitator (Acorn) at Oakhaven has connued working with schools to create over 1,000 flowers for all to enjoy. These will be available unl the end of March, for a donaon of £1, with all proceeds going to the Oakhaven.


The organisers of the Lymington Arts Fesval would like to thank Hampshire County Council for enabling this project to take place, for without the Culture & Community Acvity Grant it would not have been able to proceed, the Minister and Elders at the Lymington United Reformed Church and the Oakhaven Hospice for leng us use their wonderful gardens and all those who have become totally immersed in this project and making it so worthwhile.
