Kennington Park Flower Garden


 The Flower Garden in Kennington Park has been restored with the support of £500,000 funding, primarily from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Lambeth Council. It was formally reopened on 18 July, when a new sundial was unveiled by the MPs for Vauxhall and Bermondsey & Old Southwark, Kate Hoey and Neil Coyle.

The new sundial was made from Welsh slate by Sam Flintham, a student of historic stone carving at Kennington’s City and Guilds of London Art School.
