South Stoke - The Park

South Stoke – The Park

Mend the Gap has supported South Stoke Parish Council to landscape an area of ground as a park for the whole community. When finished this will include, wildlife friendly planting, a pond, growing beds and a quiet space for reflection and socialising. The area is near to the school, church and village hall, and it will be accessed by everyone in the community.
