Great Green Bedwyn rain gardens celebration
12th June, 6.45pm at Great Bedwyn Village Hall


There is more information about the event and ticket booking here 

The charity Action for the River Kennet worked with the community group Great Green Bedwyn to create rain gardens in the village over the past year. It is the first project of its kind in the UK working with individual homeowners. Over 25 homeowners took part and now have rain gardens, rain planters and water butts. The school and doctor surgery have fantastic rain gardens and rain planters too.

The project has reduced water entering the sewage system from over 2,000 square metres of roof. This helps reduce river pollution, reduces flooding, and creates a more biodiverse and beautiful village. 

We’ll be sharing project successes and the lessons learnt at this free event.

Some of the gardens included will be open for Great Bedwyn Open Gardens on 16th June 1pm to 5pm too.

Location Frog Ln, Great Bedwyn, Marlborough SN8 3PD
