As some of you may already be aware, the plot of land that the Secret Garden sits on is to be sold. Our lease, which expires this month, is not going to be renewed by the landowners. At this stage, it is still not clear on what basis the owners intend to sell.
Whilst this is sad news, The Belton Recreation Group that have responsibility for The Secret Garden are working with the Parish Council with the aim of keeping The Secret Garden for the village to use.
The good news is that, although our lease will expire shortly, we can continue to use The Secret Garden. We would encourage you all to continue to use The Secret Garden as much as possible – by doing so we are demonstrating how much we value The Secret Garden as a community resource.
Please do feel free to talk to any of us if you have any thoughts that you would like to share about the future of The Secret Garden. We will keep you updated as details become clear.
Belton Recreation Group (AKA The Secret Garden Committee).
