The community will celebrate by coming together on Saturday 14 May for an afternoon of storytelling by the volunteers about the work they have done.
Visitors will be able to join guided history and wildlife walks and enjoy exhibitions and a host of family and wildlife gardening activities.
In addition, there will be a string quartet playing, kindly provided by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra as part of their BSO ‘On Your Doorstep’ initiative.
Over the past three years, the project which has been supported by Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Urban Green initiative has brought many local people together to clear undergrowth, plant wildlife-friendly plants, build seating and paths, install bug hotels and bird boxes, as well as creating history and wildlife interpreted trails.
Urban Green project officer, Sue Dawson said, “It has been wonderful to see how the St Peter’s community have pulled together to make this project such a success. People of all ages and backgrounds have rolled their sleeves up and got stuck in and many have commented how much they have enjoyed connecting with nature and making a difference to this green space right in the heart of Bournemouth town centre.
“Our thanks go to the National Lottery Community Fund for their support of the project.”
Everyone is welcome to join in and visit the churchyard at St Peter’s Bournemouth on 14 May between 2.30pm and 4pm.
