Broomhill Community Trust

Broomhill Community Trust

Broomhill Community Trust is a Charity Incorporated Organisation which was formed in January 2018. Its function is to raise funds to upgrade the library building and to restore the heritage garden. The building as you may know is a Victorian villa, without many of the 'essential' features of modern living. This means that the building needs to be developed in order to make it accessible to all users. The garden was originally designed for Arthur Lee who owned the villa in the late 1920s/30s. It was designed by Percy Cane who went on to design gardens in much grander settings, such as Falkland Palace, Dartington Hall, Anna Pavlova's garden in Hampstead and the grounds of the Jubilee Palace of Haile Selassie the Emperor of Ethiopia, in Addis Ababa.
