Welcome to the Markwick Gardens Association
Our Association is made up mostly of residents from the immediate area of the gardens, a green oasis bounded by Markwick Terrace, Dane Road, Brittany Road and Charles Road in St Leonards, but is open to all who share our objectives and wish to enjoy access to these marvellous gardens.
Our objectives are simply to return the gardens to their previous Edwardian splendour.
This calls for continuous maintenance, most of which is achieved by members. More volunteers are always welcome.
Becoming a Member
As a member you have access to the gardens throughout the year.
You may like to join in maintenance groups and enjoy the company of other like minded members in caring for the gardens. In so doing you will contribute towards the conservation of a unique garden and part of the St Leonards history.
During the year we hold a number of social and fund raising events e.g. barn dances, fun dog shows, summer events, arts and crafts fair, bonfire night and fireworks display, carol singing etc.
Parts of the Gardens can also be hired by members and non-commercial organisations for parties and wedding celebrations.
The annual subscription is £40. The membership year runs from 1st April to the 31st March of the following year, so if people join mid-year the subscription is adjusted accordingly. On joining there is a one-off gate lock fee of £7, which is non-refundable.
All dogs using the Gardens must be registered and wear a distinctive collar tag which costs £4.
