Trustee Retirement

After many years as one of our Trustees Brenda Bridgeman is stepping down as a Trustee of the St. Stephen’s Millennium Green Trust at the end of August.

Brenda, together with her husband Ken, was one of the original driving forces behind the establishment of the St. Stephen’s Millennium Green twenty years ago.Over many years since Brenda has put in a tremendous amount of effort in ensuring that the Millennium Green developed and flourished to become the much loved community garden that the Green is today. She also spent much time working on the Green itself and has helped to organise many fund-raising events.

As a Trustee Brenda has always been a wise counsel to her fellow Trustees and has always provided very sound direction and advice when the Trustees have met.

The Trustees put on a (socially distanced!) ‘thank you’ event for Brenda on the Millennium Green. As you can see from the photo below we were blessed with a rainbow to mark the special occasion. Brenda can be seen with her dog celebrating.

20th Anniversary Virtual Celebration

June 25th this year marked the 20th anniversary of the Millennium Green Grand Opening. We had intended to mark this anniversary with a celebration during our events this year. As the Covid-19 pandemic has put paid to these plans we have produced a ‘Virtual Celebration’ instead. This takes the form of a short video that tells the story of the Green from the original concept and the building of the Green through to the wonderful community garden of today.

Watch the video here. It is best viewed full screen if possible. We hope that you enjoy the video.

Talk with Tea – Sunday February 9th 2020

We will remember Storm Ciara – because we look back on it on remembering that it crossed Bath at the time of another wonderful talk by Amy Frost.

Whilst the storm raged outside, we sat in the snug surroundings of St Stephen’s Centre listening to a perfectly pitched talk on the work of the very architect who designed the building that we were in. Not needing to rush away afterwards, we then enjoyed a tea of sandwiches, scones with homemade jam (from the fruit of the tree on the Millennium Green) and sumptuous helpings of homemade cake.

Thank you to the 74 people who bought tickets for yet another sell-out event. .It was a most enjoyable afternoon, which raised over £900 towards the maintenance of The Green.

We are very grateful to Amy for giving her time and we hope to welcome her back again for another talk on the architecture of our area.
