We need volunteers...

Posted: 4 Jul 2022

Our new community garden is open and we need help! 

Volunteers are still needed to help develop our community garden.

Sessions are every Tuesday between 10am - 12noon. Our RHS expert, Alison Findley, will be there each week to give guidance and share her knowledge, and there will always be a range of different activities to do (including table-top ones for those who can't or do not wish to do more physical activities). 

Please do come along, and feel free to bring along any friends or neighbours who might also be interested. There will be tea, coffee and snacks provided, and you don't need to bring anything except sensible clothing and footwear.  

If you would like to get involved, please call the Chelmsford CVS on 01245 351888 or email volunteer@chelmsfordcvs.org.uk

Or if you'd rather then you can simply come along on a Tuesday to find out how you can get involved. 


The community garden has been set up to maximise voluntary and community action, develop strong communities and enhance local wellbeing. We can't wait to see this garden start to take shape with our volunteers' energy and ideas.

Do you want a chance of winning a £50 Meadow Croft Voucher?⁠

Enter our Summer Photography Competition. It's easy to enter. ⁠
Children can get involved too! ⁠

Our theme is 'Garden'. We'd love to see your interpretation of this - it could be a display in your garden, your favourite part of your garden, a specific plant, family gardening together, a border or container or perhaps wildlife enjoying your garden. ⁠

We will be judging two different age categories- Adult & Under 16's. ⁠

Prizes for each category are: ⁠
⭐️ 1st Prize: £50 Meadow Croft Voucher ⁠
⭐️ 2nd Prize: £25 Meadow Croft Voucher ⁠
⭐️ 3rd Prize: £10 Meadow Croft Voucher ⁠

Please send in hi-res images in .jpeg or .png format to meadowcroftmarketing@wdsmith.com before the deadline. ⁠

Competition closes on Monday 29th August. ⁠

At the close of the competition, shortlisted entries will be published on social media for our followers to vote for their favourites. The winners entries will be printed and displayed on our competition board at the garden centre. ⁠
