CHARD NEWS: Living Wall is created at Chard Museum

A LIVING Wall is up and running at Chard Museum – thanks to the efforts of the Chard Improvement Action Group.

Members of CIAG – which has the tag-line of Cheer Up Chard – went along to the award-winning museum on Saturday (March 31, 2018) to plant up the painted pallets which have been positioned against a wall inside the rear courtyard.

The two upcycled standard pallets will now grow into a colourful wall garden with flowers donated by Chard florist Floweringi.

Melissa Whittaker-Mather, of CIAG, said that the living wall project took place during an Easter activity day at the museum for the whole family.

“The children and parents did a fantastic job planting,” she said. “Many thanks go to Floweringi for donating the plants and moss to line the planter areas, Martins of Chard for donating the paint and Chard Garden Centre for donating the pallets.

“We’d also like to say a big thank you to Chard Museum for supporting us and allowing us to go-ahead with the living wall.”

CIAG meets at the Eleos café in Fore Street, Chard, on a regular basis and the group is dedicated to making the area a great place to live, work and visit.

The group has its own social media page on Facebook.
