Bridgwater Mercury: Kilve Jubilee Garden opens Kilve Jubilee Garden opens

DOZENS of visitors and residents attended the opening of Kilve Jubilee Garden.

The garden at the village hall has been transformed from an unused grassy slope into a social space including walled patio with seating, surrounded by bee and insect-friendly planting.

Olaf Chedzoy gave a short speech before unveiling a wall plaque recording contributors to the project. His late wife, Doreen, was a keen supporter of the project and chose it as one of her beneficiaries.

Pat Woolley gave a speech explaining the background to the project and thanked Bridgwater College landscape design graduates Sarah Buchanan and Jan Cornell for designing the planting scheme.

Pat unveiled a slate garden plaque commemorating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Kilve village hall chairman Alison Eyley said: “The Kilve Jubilee Garden project received a special donation from HRH the Prince of Wales, who kindly instructed the gardeners at Highgrove to supply several plants to the project.

“The project received a significant donation of £3,852 from the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well as other donations from Magnox Socio-Economic Scheme, Kilve Parochial Church Council, Kilve Parish Council, Kilve News and many local residents.”
