The parish council received a £4,500 grant from Bristol Airport Local Community Fund to make the green more accessible for villagers.

The money was used to make the paths suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

Three new trees were planted in the gardens and a lectern was installed showing details about the different wildflowers, hedgerows and trees in the area.

Overhanging trees in the gardens were also cut back to tidy up the space.

Earth Anchors designed the lectern and the path and tree works were carried out by Glendale.

Bristol Airport spokesman Jacqui Mills said: “We are delighted to support the Millennium Gardens project.

“It is an invaluable asset in the centre of the village, providing local families the opportunity of enjoying a green open space with planting and landscaping that will encourage wildlife and wild flowers, now and in the future.”
