Secret garden to be revealed in Maryport

By Viv Paterson


A Maryport secret garden in the making will be revealed this month.

Our Lady & St Patrick's Presbytery grounds were unused for many years but are now a garden in the making thanks to community volunteers.

The task to turn the garden into an attractive addition to the Catholic church's community centre is being undertaken by Celia Eddy and a small group of helpers.

Celia was largely responsible for turning the Catholic priory in Eaglesfield Street into a place to enjoy, relax and admire.

The priory is up for sale so she is now turning her hand to the Presbytery, the old convent.

On Saturday, May 20, from 10am to 12.30pm, people will be able to see this garden at a coffee morning and plant sale at the community centre on Kirkby Street.

Fairtrade tea and coffee will be sold to raise money for the garden restoration project.

There will also be stalls selling plants, arts and crafts, books, bric-a-brac, toys and baked goods.
