Places of Welcome

Places of Welcome

Did you know that behind The Priory Community Pharmacy in Dudley there is a community garden? The Priory Pharmacy Community Garden had decided to host a Place of Welcome in 2019, but Covid-19 sadly delayed their launch. However, Alison and Jacqui who tend the garden along with other volunteers, have now unlocked the side gate and opened the community garden on a Monday between 2pm and 4pm to welcome their local community with a free cuppa and slice of cake!

If you are local to The Priory Pharmacy Community Garden why not drop by on Monday afternoon? You could roll up your sleeves and help with the garden or you can just take a seat under the shade of the parasol, enjoy friendly conversation and free refreshments, while enjoying the view of the garden.

The community garden has a wide range of herbs and vegetables growing in it along with a bed of beautiful flowers which the bees love. Just taking time out to spend with other people, relaxing, enjoying the sunshine, fresh air and garden really lift your spirits and you leave the garden with a real sense of wellbeing. But don’t worry, if it isn’t sunny when you go – there is room inside to shelter and still receive a warm welcome.

The Priory Pharmacy Community Garden really does have a lot to offer – find it at 95 – 97 Priory Road, Dudley, DY1 4EH
