Lilyhill (New) Gardens
People supported and staff from Lilyhill Gardens in Kilmarnock have been working in partnership with ‘Central Scotland Network Trust’ (CSNT) to transform the enclosed Garden Area within Lilyhill from an environment where people hang their washing and empty their bins to a place where the people who live in Lilyhill Gardens can come together and enjoy the pleasures of gardening and enjoying the benefits of outdoor life with their friends and neighbours.

Although work is still on progress the people who live at Lilyhill are already enjoying the benefits of the changes to their garden, and enjoying the sunshine with their neighbours. It has helped people develop skills and make better connections and friendships with their neighbours!
