Parkgate Planters Take Pride of Place

Last year the Parkgate Society Community Spirit group successfully applied for a Community Project Grant from Plus Dane Housing.
The 'Love your Neighbourhood' scheme funds improvements in the areas where Plus Dane tenants reside. In support of the grant application, Cllr Martin Barker agreed to match- fund with a portion of his CWaC member's budget. We applied for the grant to fund the purchase of planters, hanging baskets and an additional bench for Parkgate Parade.
The planters were installed by volunteers recently and have now been planted up with plants from the local Marsh Nurseries. The flowers certainly improve the area and, judging by the many comments we received from passers-by as we planted up, they are a very welcome addition to Parkgate.
The next stage is the purchase of a hanging basket for the heritage lamppost on Mostyn Square and also hanging baskets for the toilet block area on School Lane.
With the nearly completed middle slip and the colourful planters on Mostyn Square Parkgate is looking good in time for ParkgateFest.
