Lavinia Norfolk Centre

In February we submitted a Grant request for funding from the County Local Committee Community Initiative Funding.


The request was for new Lavinia Norfolk Centre Greenhouse staging and propagating equipment and also two planters for growing plants up the existing pergola. Some patio tables and chairs for utilising the space they have for socialising was also requested.


In April we heard from West Sussex County Council Community Initiative Funding, that our grant request had been successful.


The greenhouse staging and propagating equipment was ordered from Two Wests and Elliotts who when we explained what it was planned to be used for, very kindly gave us a 10% discount. The Patio table and chairs was ordered from Rutland County Garden Furniture.

A request to Southern Water produced two much needed water butts and Haskins Garden Centre, one of our Sponsors, have provided compost.
