Crossbones Volunteer Wardens
Crossbones Garden is opened to the public thanks to the generosity of volunteer wardens who give their time to supervise the garden while it is open.
BOST is recruiting more volunteers to help open the garden, particularly at the weekends. A training session will be run in March for new wardens, which will include an introduction to the space by John Constable. If you are interested in becoming a Crossbones Volunteer Warden please email firstname.lastname@example.org and more information will be provided. Please note that places on the training are limited but further sessions are intended throughout 2016.
BOST honoured with London Spade Award
We were incredibly honoured recently, to be chosen by the Metropolitan Public Gardens Association to be the recipient of their annual “London Spade Award” for their “very considerable contribution to developing and maintaining open spaces in the Bankside area.” The Metropolitan Public Gardens Association (MPGA) is a long established charity which has played a vital role in the preservation and improvement of countless gardens, neglected sites and green spaces across London. They help by providing grants to improve the environment and thus the quality of life for the local community. We are very proud to be given this once again.
