Thank You!

Spring Festival

full details

Our thanks to all of you came to our Spring Festival and filled our collection buckets! We're now just over halfway towards our £50,000 target to make the St Ann's Well Gardens Sensory Garden a 21st Century multi-sensory sanctuary. And we've secured next year's Spring Festival too. We couldn't do this without a committed band of volunteers - if you want to join us, get in touch!

A Sensory Garden for the Future!

“The Scented Garden” was created in the 1960s primarily as a garden for enjoyment by "the blind and partially sighted".


We have raised £21,000 for infrastructure improvements, a gate, signage, a central seating area, and kinetic sculptures.

We have asked the Sensory Trust to help us produce a design for the updates.


We are working with Wavertree House (RNIB) and the Brighton and Hove Dementia Action Alliance to ensure the community will be able to enjoy the improvements that are being made.


A bid has also been made to the Postcode Lottery, with the hope of raising the funds for some shade sails to provide a more pleasant seating area, especially on hot days.


Help us improve the Sensory Garden by visiting our donation page, any and all contributions welcome!

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.
