We’re designing a new sensory garden and need your help.

The Memorial Garden at Y Dolydd Llanfyllin Workhouse was one of the first projects undertaken by the Trust when it took ownership of the building in 2004. The garden is now suffering from wear and tear and is in need of rejuvenating. Our ambition is to create a sensory garden for the community that will be open and accessible to all. We want this to be a garden for everyone, where we can all come together to enjoy the space and time spent with each other. We’ve written a consultation document, which you can download below. It describes what we want from the space and invites you to contribute your ideas to help us create a space that is truly owned and enjoyed by all.

You can contribute by letting your imagination run wild with the garden drawing included in the consultation document as a template to add your ideas to. Drop off your drawings at the Y Dolydd book room with your name and contact details. We’ll collect them from there and hope to have an exhibition in the New Year of all the entries we receive and your ideas may become a part of the design.

Or you can email greenhub@the-workhouse.com or join us at the Llanfyllin Green Hub Facebook group and share your comments and ideas there.

Your involvement is much appreciated. The Workhouse and gardens are open 7 days a week during daylight hours if you wish to call in and have a look around. We’d love to see you.
