The beautiful grounds at Strelley Hall

We are really working hard to improve the gardens at Strelley Hall this year, our plans include building a natural woodland play area for children and creating a trail around the grounds and the Church. 


Update February 2020 - we now have a fabulous new bucket swing in the grounds, and are working on the sensory garden around it, but all are welcome to use the bucket swing now.  The sensory garden is evolving and we hope to have it looking fabulous for spring time.  Thank you very much to our fantastic volunteers from Smile and Achieve social club in Aspley for all your hard work!
