Stopsley Community Garden is officially open

Stopsley Village celebrated the official opening of a new community garden on June 26th. Rachel Hopkins, MP for Luton South, and Cllr Mahmood Hussain, Mayor or Luton, cut the ribbon to declare the garden open.

Developed over the course of the last 18 months by local volunteers, the garden is hosted by Stopsley Baptist Church and located on a piece of land next to their Greenhouse building on St Thomas’ Road. It is open every day and includes edible growing plots, ornamental flower beds, benches and a pergola, a lawn and small play facilities for children.

For more information about the garden and how to get involved, see the Stopsley Community Garden facebook page.
