Gorse Millennium Green

wal-037We’re raising £1,000 to Help fund the gorse millennium green community garden in new Brighton all monies raised will help towards the upkeep of this little park

This small community owned park in new Brighton that was originally owned by the water board, who wanted to build houses but the local residents raised a petition to save the gorse in 1999 and the water board said if you raise £90000 in 12 months it’s yours. this was just as the millennium trust came into force and they heard about our plight and instantly donated £50000, so that left the local residents to raise another £40000 and through various means selling off small plots of the land etc. we raised the remaining money in 9 months and this little gem has been ours ever since. a large percentage of the work is done by myself and a couple of neighbours, we have a good selection of wildlife and plants in our garden we try to encourage as much wildlife as possible butterflies bees etc. With help from our local hedgehog rescue we have been able to release 4 hedgehogs to date with the hope of releasing more in the near future. Our small community park relies and survives on donations from the public so your help would be very much appreciated, We are open seven days a week and all our welcome to come and enjoy our little paradise in New Brighton we are situated on Gorsehill road in New Brighton
