If you're interested in donating,

In response to government advice to avoid all group gatherings, it is with great sadness that we have decided to postpone  this year's Spring Festival.


We believe this is the right decision for the welfare of the community at this time. There is a possibility we may reschedule for later in the year but if not we will come back in 2021 even bigger and better, and no doubt we will all be ready to party by then!!

We will keep you informed of any plans for this year. 

A Sensory Garden for the Future!

      Our exciting “Sensory Garden For the Future” project is gathering momentum and we now have even more partners on board –Wavertree House (RNIB), East Sussex Association of Blind & Partially Sighted People, the Grace Eyre Centre Learning Disabilities), Age UK Brighton & Hove and Brunswick in Bloom are now all involved, and we have also included people from the local area around St Ann’s Well Gardens.


      We have recently been awarded a grant from the Postcode Lottery, which with other funding partners and our own fundraising efforts from the Spring Festival, takes the total to over £30,000. To help us with the next stage, the design process, we are commissioning the Sensory Trust. The project brief is ambitious – a central seating area with shade to be used by groups and as a conversation area, wind sculptures and other stimulating physical elements, interactive signage, and more.


      We need other people in the local area to get involved, as one of the aims is to enhance interaction between the user groups and local residents. If you would like to help us take this forward, please get in touch.

These signs have been put up in the Gardens asking visitors not to feed the wildlife - essentially, the pigeons and squirrels. As in lots of parks, rats are attracted by the food on the ground. We're supporting the Council and have stopped putting food in the feeders for the time being.
