Seafront Garden News: June 2018

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

Marine Garden Gate

We are very pleased to see the gate at Marine Garden has finally been repaired after an accident some time ago. We have remained in contact with Sefton Council throughout this process to ensure that the repair was done to a standard in keeping with the history of the Garden. It was worth the wait and we are pleased with the result and would like to thank Garyowen Ltd for the work done.

Book Stall

Thanks to everyone who came along to our book sale on 5th May. We made £229 which will be put towards improving the Gardens.

Scarecrow Festival

We have set this date for this years Scarecrow Festival as September 15th. Watch this space for more details.

Future Project - Benches

Some time ago we had the idea of reinstating an original bench in Marine Garden following the discovery of some original end parts. We’d like to thank Sefton Council for taking this idea and producing this wonderful bench. We are now looking at refurbishing and painting more benches in the Gardens. We are hoping that this can be an ongoing project and are looking for volunteers to help. If you are interested, please get in touch.

Regular Volunteer Activities

Thank you to the volunteers who have helped with gardening and litter picking. Last month we had 15 volunteers at our litter pick, and 15 at our gardening sessions which was fantastic! Last month we had help from the Royal Sun Alliance when 25 of their staff came along for a community volunteer day. Thank you to everyone involved – you did a great job. If there are any other employers who are interested in volunteering, please let us know.

Finally, we have liaised with the Council and Community Payback Team, who will now be working one day a week in our Gardens doing litter picking and general tidying work.

Our next volunteer litter pick will be at Crescent Garden on Saturday 9th June 10:30 – 11:30am. Our June volunteer gardening sessions will be on Tuesday 12th at 9:30am and Wednesday 27th at 7pm. 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.
