Some of our readers of Sylvia’s Briefs have asked if I will tell you about their efforts to complete restoration of a wonderful walled garden in a delicious part of Yorkshire.
Helmsley Walled Garden is a magical hidden garden set against the backdrop of Helmsley Castle in the heart of North Yorkshire. There are five acres of beautiful gardens incorporating flowers, vegetables and herbs that have been brought back from total dereliction by the vision of a local lady and a dedicated band of volunteers.
The garden is a registered charity offering horticultural therapy for those in need. We have reached the final of the People’s Millions and have a 50:50 chance of winning £50,000 for a new sensory garden area, physic garden and disabled access raised beds plus support for school projects and a therapist for special needs children and the disabled.
