First Day of Christmas


12 Days of BOST – Some Christmas Cheer from our Chairman

It’s been a busy year for Bankside Open Spaces Trust, and we’d like to thank you, our supporters and true loves, by giving you, 12 Days of Bankside Open Spaces Trust! This celebration takes us from the relaunch of one of our most popular sites Marlborough Sports Garden, through to the exciting future for Crossbones, another of our sites. On the way we’ll celebrate our biggest Great Get Together yet, 10 extraordinary women, Octavia Hill’s Army Cadets, Future Gardeners, 5 awards and the ongoing success of our community centre Living Space, which now welcomes 100 school children a day!

None of this would be possible without the funding and support from invaluable sponsors and supporters; these are our ‘Local Heroes’.

So - on the First Day of Christmas our true loves gave to us, all the support we need. Without you, our supporters and true loves, Bankside Open Spaces Trust just wouldn’t work. We’re celebrating 19 years of protecting, preserving and transforming open spaces and working with communities next year. So we’d like to say a huge thank you to all of you who have made the last year possible, we look forward to working with you for many more years to come.
