Sharing Repton

The Garden Trust is delighted to have been awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £99,500 for its ‘Sharing Repton’ project, made possible by money raised by National Lottery players.

Sharing Repton will work with local volunteers to deliver five pilot activities aimed at including participation from local communities, based around five Repton sites across the country. It will additionally create an infrastructure of skill sharing, guidance materials and training workshops with a view to other groups being able to offer similar local community events in the future.

The project is working at Kenwood, London, with London Parks and Gardens Trust and English Heritage; Wicksteed Park, Kettering, with Northamptonshire Gardens Trust; Catton Park, Norwich, with Norfolk Gardens Trust and Broadland District Council; Blaise Castle, Bristol, with Avon Gardens Trust, and Warley Woods in the Black Country with volunteers from the Heart of England group and beyond.

Sharing Repton will run through from 2018 till the end of 2019 and we would love to hear from anyone wanting to participate, or to link into the associated skill sharing and training.
