After completing the Moverons Farm visit a few U3A Members were invited to visit a public garden in Brightlingsea called Springmead located on Spring Chase, Brightlingsea. The gardens have been developed in the last 2 years from a derelict patch of land left in Trust to the Council. visited during 2004.

The flowers grown in the polytunnels are used to populate the many tubs and display areas which have enabled Brightlingsea to win the Village in Flower competition. This includes the Bathing Hut diplay at the village gateway entrance.
