This month, we are working on another new and very exciting project in collaboration with SEGRO as part of its Community Investment Plan in Northampton. We are building a wildlife and wellbeing garden space at the St Crispin Community Centre, managed by Community Spaces Northampton.

The multipurpose space is designed to be accessible for all. At the centre of the design is a large circular lawn with perimeter pathway. There will be archways, seating and planting to inspire all the senses, and heritage fruit trees have also been planted along with an earthen bank for pollinator-friendly wildflower seed mix.

We have had so much help on this project from local businesses and local community centre users, including the Northants football club youth education centre students.

Community Spaces Northampton Strategy Director, Alice Morgan, said: “We are incredibly grateful for all the hard work that the Groundwork Team have put into this project. Huge thanks goes to SEGRO for its generosity, which made this project a reality, and of course the wonderful team who volunteered to help transform our garden space. It has made such a difference to our community centre and is something we could not have achieved without Groundwork and SEGRO.”
