We have started to put out the golf bags in preparation for the Women’s Open Golf in August
There will be bags along the route from St Annes Station to the Royal Lytham Golf Club
This should provide some colour amd a bit of fun for visitors during the golf tournament and hopefully beyond
The plants are in small pots so watering and keeping them fresh is going to be an ongoing task whilst they are in place
Thankfully we have had some rain recently but with the dry weather set to continue we will have plenty of work to do
Look out for the bags when you are out and about – they are due to be joined by some friends soon…….watch this space
With a marvellous team effort on Thursday morning the piano is now installed in the Peace and Happiness Garden.
Steven Owen donated an old piano to us which Trevor Medly has made fit to be seen.
Thanks so much to Owens Removals for their continued support in this bonkers project.
Steve and his helper having just moved the piano for us – many thanks!
Pam, Ian and Sandra helped Fiona with the display.
A big thnak you to all of our fantastic Peace and Happiness Gardeners for their work tidying up the garden and putting in extra hours.
Lynda sorted out the succulent bedding display at the base of the Les Dawson statue too.
Our vertical gardens have also been installed and the image shows one of them before going on the wall. Please pop down to the shelter in the garden by the Pier to have a closer look!
Well done Lee Ramage for finishing off the display
This is one of the display units before being installed on the wall
You may have noticed, that there is some tree work going on in Ashton Gardens
This is important work that had to be done for safety reasons
The discussions have already started as to what can be put in to replace them which will cope with the conditions
Watch this space!
Summer is alays a busy time and we have been fully occupied planting up tubs and troughs for our town display
We welcomed some new volunteers and most of the time the weather has been very kind to us, although keeping the plants watered has been something of a challenge
Can you spot the bee?
The tubs and troughs sponsored by our local business supporters are now going out around the town
The Ladies Open Golf is now almost upon us and we have some very special planting being prepared to welcome the thousands of international Visitors who make this event so special
So please watch this space!
