Botanical Gardens Education Centre

It is proposed to build an education centre replacing the existing temporary classroom block which is over 30 years’ old. This will be a single-storey permanent building providing 3 flexible classrooms which can be opened up for larger lectures. There will be a library area, an office and kitchen and toilet facilities.

The centre will provide educational opportunities which currently this has been constrained by inadequate facilities and classroom capacity.

Planning has been obtained (April 2015).

Education Centre Drawing


The Trust still needs to raise a considerable sum of money before building can begin. Once the Centre is built it is hoped that an Education Officer can be appointed.
