Help the Railway Garden Fund the Planting

We are pleased to introduce our new website along with our crowdfunding campaign to raise the rest of the funds to complete the garden, allowing it to open to everyone. The ‘grand opening’ is planned for Saturday 1st of June 2019 (more info to follow in due course).

The landscaping works are now well underway and planned to complete beginning of April 2019. However, garden will not be the same without all the finishing touches, like planting and seating and tools, etc to help maintain the garden. We need everyone’s help to get there!

To make a donation, please visit the Donate page. There is also info here about how your kind donations will help and what items it will fund.

Once complete, the garden will open Mon-Sat daily during the day-time. This new transformed green space at the heart of the Crofton Park Town Centre will become a new destination and meeting point for everyone to use and enjoy.

The community gardeners (Friends Group) will continue to be responsible for maintaining the garden, as before, in line with their Partnership Agreement with Govia Thameslink Rail. However, once opened everyone in the neighbourhood using the space is expected to respect the efforts of the volunteers and keep it clean and tidy for all to benefit.

The community gardeners would like to hear from anyone who would like to join the ‘Friends Group’ and be more active in managing the garden going forward. Please email: CroftonRailwayGarden@gmail.com.
