Ongoing Projects

Over the course on 2018 we saw several new additions to our Gardens in the form of benches, some from our group and some which had been refurbished as memorials. We are hoping to continue with this for the coming year. Should anyone wish to have a memorial bench in any of the Gardens, please get in touch with us or approach the Council direct. We also plan to investigate railing and brickwork restoration, and replacement noticeboards over the coming year, in addition to our regular volunteer work. We would like to thank everyone who has volunteered over the last 12 months, and also those who have donated via our LocalGiving page and/or donation post. Your help is very much appreciated.


In the spring we hope to hold more book sales, plus we will be having our eleventh Scarecrow Festival in September. We also plan to have Yoga in Beach Lawn Garden over the summer, weather permitting.

Regular Volunteer Activities

We have got off to a good start for the New Year with 15 volunteers coming along to help at our January litter pick in Adelaide Garden, despite the cold weather.

We also worked with the Green Sefton Gardening Team over three sessions in early January in Marine Garden, where we worked on clearing some of the overgrown undergrowth and shrubs around the main entrance. It was great to have their help to remove all the cuttings in their truck (we didn't have to spend ages cutting it up to put in black sacks!) and over the next few days they added wood chippings to the area we'd worked on, which will hopefully help to keep the weeds at bay. Finally, at our late January gardening session we worked on the overgrown grass edging around some of the beds in Crescent Garden.

Throughout the year we will be litter picking on the second Saturday of each month from 10:30 until 11:30.

Our gardening sessions take place on the second Tuesday of each month commencing 9:30am, and the fourth Wednesday of each month commencing at 1pm. For all gardening sessions we meeting outside Waterloo Place café.

Equipment is provided for all volunteer activities and we have tea and biscuits afterwards. Everyone is welcome and there is no need to commit to regular attendance – simply turn up when you are able. All help is appreciated.
