Suntrap Garden to CLOSE
As a friend of Suntrap I can only re-iterate what Scotsgran has said, this is a beautiful garden which had been supported by the friends for 32 years. Please do what you can to help us keep the garden open. The bottom line is that we need at least £130,000 to put o hand some of the remedial work, where the surveyors get their £750,000 I simply do not know.
We need a figure head to represent us in our fight……and above all money so we can at least keep the garden open, according to the accounts it breaks even at the moment. To keep the classes running we have to pay the tutors……..Oatridge have provided them in the past, I am not sure as to how they equate to the accounts. We were only informed about this on Wednesday, and have been given very little time to try and sort out a plan to save this garden for the people it was intended for.
It was George Boyd Andserson’s wish that the garden be used to teach people about gardening and encourage people to grow things, both flowers and vegetables.
Any help or suggestions will be very gratefully recieved.
There are photographs of the garden taken on our recent open day in my photos and there is more information about Suntrap both on the NTS page and also the Suntrap page.
