CHIRK’S Millennium Gardens could be set to undergo a transformation after plans were outlined by the Community Forum.
Members hope to transform the site into a sensory garden, containing five individual beds with each focusing on a different sense.
The group is currently awaiting the results of a funding application from grants organisation WREN. A decision is expected in May.
Jackie Allen, Forum Chair, said if funding is awarded the garden could be opened by the end of June.
“We would like some work to commence before then,” continued Mrs Allen, “It should be a great addition to the town and we hope to have it in place ahead of this year’s Wales in Bloom judging.”
The new garden is the latest feature to come to Chirk and build on last year’s win at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Britain in Bloom competition.
Revealed plans to garner sponsors for each plot, Mrs Allen added: “We feel that with our Britain in Bloom success it would be good to give others the chance to come on board and join us in our ‘In Bloom’ entries.”
Although Chirk will not compete in this year’s Britain in Bloom due to its 2012 success, the Forum will be looking to recapture their Wales in Bloom title from 2011 after losing to Tenby last year. The town will also back the non-competitive RHS ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ campaign, which encourages individual groups to work with judges and embrace floral displays.
