June 25th this month will mark the 20th anniversary of the St. Stephen’s Millennium Green Grand Opening in Bath’s Lansdown district.
Ian Wilson – who is Chairman of the Green’s Trust – tells me: ‘The Millennium Green off Richmond Road in Lansdown has become a much-loved community asset in Lansdown providing local residents with a beautiful and serene open space. The Millennium Green has also been the venue for many community events over the past 20 years. During the Covid-19 pandemic, it has been extensively used as a haven for local residents and for residents across Bath.
We had intended to mark this anniversary with a celebration during our community events this year. As the Covid-19 pandemic has put paid to these plans we have produced a ‘Virtual Celebration’ instead.
This takes the form of a short video that tells the story of the Green from the original concept and the building of the Green through to the wonderful community garden of today.
Watch the video here. It is best viewed full screen if possible. We hope that you enjoy the video.
