Crowd Fundraising Update

The Friends of Walkden Gardens are installing a labyrinth at the far end of the wisteria arch in the Gardens.
What is a labyrinth? It is a sort of maze but without hedges. In ancient times, walking the labyrinth was a kind of pilgrimage.
Thanks to several generous donations we are well on the way to raising the necessary funding and the Friends Group will also be using their own funds.
Many thanks to all those who donated via our JustGiving page. You raised a total of £205 before deduction of JustGiving fees.
