Stowmarket Library opens accessible community garden


The Stowmarket Library unveils a newly transformed garden space to the public.

The Arts Council England-funded Stitching Stowe project commissioned Fox Yard Studio and Modece Architects to turn the unused garden courtyard into a space anyone can use.

The garden now has brightly colored paving stones and windows, a concept map of Stowmarket, as well as murals and artwork depicting the history and stories of the town.

Wildlife-friendly plants have also been planted, and birdhouses and insect hotels have been set up by the youth of Thrive.

The garden has also been made more accessible to people with reduced mobility.

The garden opened on October 9 and more than 200 people attended the unveiling.

The project was led by library and information advisor Summer Lambert, 26, with support from the Suffolk Library Arts Team.

She said: “We are all delighted and amazed at how the garden looks now.

“It has been a real community success with local people and organizations coming together to create something special that we can all enjoy throughout the year. ”
