Launch of Community Garden

Opened by the Mayor

After many months of hard work, both on the ground as well as behind the scenes,  the revitalised Community ‘Garden for All’ at St George’s Church, Kemp Town was  officially opened by the Mayor of Brighton and Hove, Councillor Geoffrey Wells.

Cutting the ribbon

The garden was open from 12 noon, refreshments were on sale and there were various stalls for the visitors to enjoy. At 3pm The Mayor officially declared the garden open by cutting the ribbon and accepting a ceremonial scroll on behalf of the community.

Choir concert

At 3.30pm St George’s own versatile choir performed a concert in honour of the new garden. Afternoon tea was available, as well as Pimms and lemonade for those who wanted to sit out in the lovely sunshine and enjoy the garden.

Volunteer gardeners needed

St George’s are very proud to have such a beautiful garden open again for everyone’s enjoyment, but they do need volunteers to help maintain it. If you have a few hours to spare and could help by cutting the grass, weeding and planting they would love to hear from you. You can contact the volunteer team by e-mail at

  • So nice to see the gardens looking lovely. Three of my children were baptized in St George’s, my first-born 47 years ago. It’s changed a lot since then – for the better.
