Worthing community garden gets 'inspiring addition' thanks to Wickes Community Programme

A community garden in Worthing has had a new pergola installed, described as 'an inspiring addition' to the intergenerational, family-friendly space.

The BugCycle Community Garden in Beach House Park is a Creative Waves project and the Wickes Community Programme donated the materials for the pergola, which features a green vine and jasmine roof.

Artist Nadia Chalk, co-founder of Creative Waves, said: "The community garden is an intergenerational, family-friendly space that is well used by the local community. Every Wednesday morning, we run free activities and gardening sessions.

"With the rising cost of materials, we are so grateful for the support from Wickes. The whole process was the easiest we have ever experienced during our 11 years of writing funding applications – thank you for recognising the value of the project."
