An award-winning garden designer is drawing up plans to redesign a Newquay community garden. 

Kim Parish has come up with an initial design for Crantock Street Community Garden. 

The Crantock Street Community Garden group, which has taken over responsibility for the community space, will now be consulting with the landowners Cornwall Council before making more detailed plans public.  

The team is also planning to create a calendar with local people and organisations to help raise funds for the garden redevelopment. 

Anna Jay, the chair of Crantock Street Community Garden, said: “We had a very exciting and long-awaited meeting at the garden. 

“The committee met up with Kim Parish from Landscapes of Distinction who we commissioned to create a new design for the area.  

“Kim has known the garden for 25 years and has always wanted to see it thrive so she was delighted to be asked to work with us. 

“Olly Monk Cornwall councillor for Newquay Trenance supported us with funding for the designs and we will be meeting with him soon to share plans before making them public. Once we have sign off from Cornwall Council we will be seeking funding for a total transformation of the area.” 

Businesses are being offered sponsorship opportunities in the calendar.  

Anna said: “We’re in the early planning stages of planning the calendar but we’re hoping to invite people and groups who use the garden to get involved.  

“In order to do this, we will be looking for local businesses or one business who would be willing support us with printing costs.  

“This is an opportunity to have their business advertised on the calendar which will be sold across Newquay ... and further afield!
