The recently formed  Botanic Gardens Community Association will be holding a public consultation on Saturday 11th August 2012 in order that the public are made aware of what is currently happening with the Museum building and what the future plans are;  a questionnaire will be available for people to complete and this information will give the Association an idea of how they move forward with plans for the long-term benefit of the gardens and for the public.   The questionnaire will shortly be made available online but it is meeting the public face-to-face that the Association really wants.

They will be on hand from 10.00am until 4.00pm on Saturday near the Fernery, but if it’s raining they will be inside the Fernery – an opportunity for folk to have a look inside this ‘national treasure’.
