Following a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Havant Civic Society are undertaking refurbishment work on the Gazebo Garden to restore it for use once again.
The work includes brickwork re-pointing, new railings, replacement of an existing window and reinstatement of one of the blocked former windows in the top floor of the Gazebo.
The Gazebo Garden is now closed to public access until the beginning of March. During the spring months, replanting is scheduled to take place, and the Spring Arts and Heritage Centre will be researching the historical context and producing new interpretive panels for installation later this year, when the upper story of the Gazebo will also be open to visitors for the first time. New folding seating will be made available for any local organisations interested in using the garden for appropriate education, social or arts events.
