Come join us at Dagenham Heathway Library this half term. We'll be joined by the National Trust and continuing our community consultation about the Stoneford Cottage Garden! We'll be able to update you on the project, share results from the first Phase, and, most importantly, hear your ideas about what should happen at this new, community green space! If you'd like to have your say, come along.

Company Drinks are thrilled to be working with the National Trust on coming up with ideas for the Stoneford Garden in Dagenham. We’ll be hosting a series of visits and ‘Dreaming’ sessions, and asking YOU “What would you like to see the garden become?”…. We’ll be talking to local groups (including our own), dreaming up ideas, looking to ‘Gardens We Love’, learning about the biodiversity of the site and trying to answer these questions together. This project will consist of a series of visits, workshops and creative idea-generation sessions. We’ll advertise these on our newsletter. If you would like to register your interest in this project, please email cam@companydrinks.info.
