Celebrate with ActivLives at the community garden’s 10th birthday party on Saturday 21st July from 11am to 3pm.
The “Wonderland” event at the People’s Community Garden on Maidenhall Allotments, Halifax Road, Ipswich IP2 8RE will offer fun for all the family and everyone is encouraged to dress in the spirit of the theme, with our face painter at the ready.
There is something for everyone – a range of quality planys, ideas for your garden, a Hatter’s Tea Party, refreshments, a tour of the community beehives and even some rock and roll! You can also try your hand at croquet with Ipswich Croquet Club and a selection of sports run by the ActivIpswich team on the Pavilion lawn.
Children will be able to make a bird box to attract feathered friends to their garden or local woodland with Ipswich Wildlife Group, learn about hedgehogs with Suffolk Wildlife Trust, and talk to master composters on the all-important subject of garden waste and keeping our soil healthy.
The Mayor of Ipswich, Jane Riley, will open the event at noon and there will be an awards presentation to honour the volunteers.
