Over the past eleven years, it has been restored from a completely neglected state into a thriving community garden. It now provides a venue for education and training for people of all abilities, as well as being an established local visitor attraction.

Film Night – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Director: Martin McDonagh
2017, 115 minutes, Certificate 15
After months of apparent police inaction in her daugher’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message to the local police chief (Woody Harrelson). When Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an officer with a background of violence and racism also gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s police reaches crisis point. An Oscar-winning, darkly comic drama of pain, anger and forgiveness.
