Your Community Garden

As part of our care for the environment and serving the community we have set aside part of the grounds of Haldane House for use by you! The House is across Tankerville Terrace from the church and was built in the 19th century with a small walled garden, this has now been transformed into a space for you to contemplate, meditate and to enjoy the wonderful herbs, flowers and grasses.
We are grateful to the Heritage Lottery fund for assisting towards the creation of the garden and all the work from many volunteers. Recently we have hosted activities including Northumbrian afternoon, a quiet morning, a Teddy Bears picnic, a Bumblebee Tea and Mad Hatters Tea Party.
Children from West Jesmond Primary School frequently enjoy an afternoon in the garden learning about plants, insects and animals! Among the Bee friendly flowers and shrubs there are frogs, bees, butterflies and insects as well as birds using the bird bath and bird boxes. See if you can spot the bat box!
The Church maintains the wildlife garden and the garden surrounding the church, with help from an knowledgeable professional gardener Jonny Millar and a keen volunteer. It is almost a ‘secret garden’ waiting to be discovered, and everyone is always welcome.
