Alrewas Parish Council Jubilee Gardens

Alrewas Parish Council has designated its land between Deepmoor Close and Inge Drive as a community garden. It is named The Jubilee Garden in memory of Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.

The project is designed to:

  • Provide a community asset for use by all to aid wellbeing and mental health
  • Help address climate change by planting heritage trees and other planting
  • Support local wildlife by planting which provides nectar over a long season from fruit trees, hedging and wildflowers, gives shelter, and does not use chemicals
  • Enhance links between community groups including the Civic Society and Scouts to support the cohesion of the local community

The Parish Council is very grateful for financial support received from the Staffordshire County Council Climate Change, the Transforming the Trent Valley Fund and has used Parish Council funds to develop the project. 

Progress to date:

As of Autumn 2023 the heritage fruit trees have been established as has some hedging and more planting is planned. Ecogrid pathways are being laid to help access for all.
