ESCAPE project gearing up for Chelsea

April 11, 2019

With the 2019 Chelsea Flower Show being just around the corner, all eyes have been on Swaffham's ESCAPE project on Tumbler Hill. The project run by Family Action is going to be a big part of the charity's artisan garden at Chelsea this year. The garden has been designed by garden designer Alistair Bayford as part of Family Action’s 150th Anniversary celebrations and is based around the theme of 'family monsters', issues that can cause difficulty within families such as addiction, mental heath issues and divorce. ESCAPE participants have painted words on pebbles that will be placed in the pond in the garden and ESCAPE Project Co-ordinators Katy Fullilove and Karen Bek have started work on a willow sculpture that will also feature. Some of the plants for the garden have been grown at the allotment, these include wild garlic and honey garlic. On Tuesday 9th April, film crews from the BBC, ITV and Family Action's head office were all on site to interview staff, volunteers and beneficiaries. There were also reporters from the EDP and Lynn News. The BBC news segment was broadcast live from the allotment and was a great source of excitement for all involved.
The show will open to the public on Tuesday 17th May and a large group of volunteers from the project will make their way to the show in London via a coach from Swaffham. A number of participants will be involved in the build week at Chelsea too.
We wish everyone involved lots of luck and can't wait to see the completed garden on the big screen.
