Our latest newsletter letting everyone know what Friends of Waterloo Seafront Gardens is currently involved in.

Adelaide Garden Toposcope Unveiling

Thank you to everyone who came along to support us in unveiling the new toposcope at Adelaide Garden last month. We were very pleased to be able to restore this original feature to the Garden and would like especially to thank the local resident who made a significant donation; Crosby Memorials for the construction and Cllr Veronica Webster for officially unveiling the piece.

Book Stall

Thank you to everyone who came along to our bookstall in March. It was a great success, the weather was great, and we raised £196 for our funds. We plan to hold another one on 3rd June, weather permitting.

Regular Volunteer Activities

Big thanks to all the volunteers who helped with gardening and litter picking over the past month. We had 17 volunteers at our last litter pick, including some new volunteers, which was great.

We also had 15 volunteers helping at gardening sessions in the past month, including Andy, a photography student who took photos of us at work. The gardening team have been continuing their battle against ivy and have also been weeding the area around Crescent Garden steps. The Gardens are starting to look summery now, but the weeds are making a comeback, so if anyone has any spare time to come and help, you would be most welcome!

Our next litter pick will be at Crescent Garden on Saturday 10th June 10:30 – 11:30am. We will also do some extra gardening on this day. Our June volunteer gardening session will be on Tuesday 13th at 9:30am and Wednesday 28th at 7pm. As we are now officially in ‘summertime’ our Wednesday sessions will all start at 7pm. Tuesday session will remain at 9:30am. For all gardening sessions we will meet near Waterloo Place café.

Everyone is welcome at our volunteer sessions. The more people come to help, the more we achieve! If you want to join in and help, just come along on the day, or get in touch with us using the details at the top of this newsletter.
