Published: 28th July 2021 18:58

Thanks to our community, Neston is looking its best for the summer season, lovely to enjoy for residents and visitors alike.

PDQ Landscape Maintenance, on behalf of Neston Town Council, and volunteers from Elephant Bank have been busy planting up the centre of town, dressing it at its best for all to enjoy.

New concrete planters replace the ugly plastic versions that have been in place throughout the pandemic.New concrete planters replace the ugly plastic versions that have been in place throughout the pandemic. Brenda Marple enjoyed a wander around as PDQ finished hanging baskets and dressing the town council's beautiful planter outside of St Mary and St Helen's Church.

The red and white hideous plastic barriers at the Cross were replaced by Cheshire West and Chester Council with drab grey concrete versions that now look more in-keeping and welcoming since the staff at Elephant Bank have donated plants and gotten them bedded in.

Elephant Bank have taken responsibility for the upkeep of the plants and have made a fantastic start.

Emma Mitchell and team hard at work.

We passed gone 7pm on Monday after the planters had been delivered that morning (26 July 2021) and Emma Mitchell and team were still busy planting, as normal Elephant Bank service continued. They even had a little extra help.

Widening the pavement allows more space for shoppers and visitors to town, while maintaining the opportunity for Al Fresco dining.Widening the pavement allows more space for shoppers and visitors to town, while maintaining the opportunity for Al Fresco dining.

We're excited now for the arrival of Neston's own parklet, that will sit outside Paisley Grey until the end of September. Neston is a pilot town in a wider CWAC project and we expect it will be an uplifting, welcome addition to our town.

Whilst an improvement the new concrete containers appear stark and sub optimal. Could the High School Art Students have a competition for a design project within their studies?

Presumably the horrible planters are there so that the Elephant can use our pavement for their alfresco service leaving the town centre looking an eyesore at our expense which is crazy. Hopefully this is not a permanent solution.

I sincerely hope that it is a permanent solution. High Streets are dying on their backsides and this clearly can help stop that decline. I had a couple of beers outside The Elephant last night and am so pleased that option is now available.

I cant see many positives coming out of the pandemic so will take this as a small win.
