- The 2022 Lansdown Open Gardens
The Lansdown Open Gardens held on Sunday June 19th was a very successful event despite some light rain later in the afternoon. Over 240 visitors viewed seven remarkable gardens across Lansdown and had a range of delicious cakes to enjoy with their tea and coffee on the Millennium Green. The plant and produce sale on the Millennium Green did a roaring trade with people making purchases from a wide selection of plants.
The event raised over £2100 towards the upkeep of the Millennium Green. Many thanks to all the garden owners who very kindly opened their gardens up to visitors. Many thanks also to all the helpers on the day who ensured a very successful event.

- ‘Talk with Wine’ April 27th 2022
The ‘Talk with Wine’ on April 27th was a great success with over 70 attendees and over £650 raised towards the upkeep of the Millennium Green. Professor Barry Gilbertson’s talk on ‘World Heritage: it’s importance to Bath and our local economy’ was very well received. Barry gave fascinating insights into the benefits and challenges to Bath of being a World Heritage City. Barry also spoke about the Bath Blitz given that April 27th was the 80th anniversary of the Blitz.
Many thanks to Anne Love, to her husband Charlie, to Chris Melbourne and to other helpers for making the events a success. Thanks also to the Royal High School for providing a great venue, the Sophie Cameron Centre.

- Jackie Harris Retires As A Trustee
After 20 years of sterling service to the St. Stephen’s Millennium Green Trust Jackie Harris has decided to retire as a Trustee.
The Trustees would like to thank Jackie for her tireless support of the Millennium Green over many years and for her great work in organising many fund-raising events over two decades. Indeed Jackie played a major role in the great success of the Lansdown Open Gardens just last weekend. The financial health of the Trust owes a great deal to Jackie’s fund-raising efforts.
Jackie also spent much time helping with plantings and gardening on the Green. The current magnificent state of the Green is in a significant part down to her dedication and efforts over the past years.
The Trustees would also like to thank Jackie’s husband Richard for all the effort he has put into fund-raising events over the past years.
