Who we are and what we do

What we do

We want to help keep Stephens House & Gardens thriving as an asset for the community, and we can also represent the broad interests of the gardens’ users.


  • Help raise funds  for the Trust through donations and standing orders;
  • Help with community and fund-raising events, such as Quiz Nights, the Summer Garden Fete, the Egg Hunt and Halloween;
