Poynton Heritage Garden

The Poynton Heritage Garden was officially opened on Saturday 14th April by Theo Eaves, one of Poynton's distinguished war veterans, assisted by Town Mayor Cllr Sarah-Jane Gilmore.

The opening was an opportunity to celebrate the successful transformation of what was a little used and sterile public area into a colourful and tranquil space for all to enjoy.

The local volunteers responsible for this project, include representatives from Poynton and District Rotary Club, Poynton In Bloom, Projects 4 Poynton, Poynton Town Council and Poynton Library.

All those groups and organisations who kindly helped fund the Garden will be recognised on a permanent plaque. A photo of Poynton Heritage Garden

The Heritage Garden is the result of many months of fund raising and hard work by a small group of volunteers, and occupies the previously barren space between Priorslegh Medical Practice and the Library.

It comprises a central raised bed, with a traditional lamp post, and elsewhere on the site seven memorial benches, five large planters, two half size planters, an insect house, bird box and a number of wall-mounted silhouettes that celebrate Poynton's rich heritage.

Steps inset in the sides of the raised bed are there to help younger gardeners access it for their own planting. Work is continuing to procure a centre piece for the plinth in the raised bed.
