Future looks bright this spring for flower beds

Residents, businesses and community organisations are set to blossom this spring having adopted a flower bed with Lancaster City Council.

A choice of flower beds were made available at sites in both Lancaster and Morecambe including West End Gardens, Eric Morecambe statue and Morecambe Train Station as well as Lancaster’s Dalton Square.

Everyone adopting a flower bed has received a plaque in the flower bed in recognition of their contribution and also a mention on Lancaster City Council’s website.

Those who have kindly adopted spring flowerbeds in Lancaster and Morecambe and funded the cost of the planting are:

Morecambe Residents David Brown and Sian Johnson
Venus and Cupid Arts Trust
Old Pier Bookshop
Colin Brown - Hairdressers
Morecambe Bay Primary School
Morecambe BID
Winter Gardens
Briggs Shoes
ICU Security
Lancaster BID

Coun Brendan Hughes, Cabinet member with responsibility for environmental services, explained:  “The fact that this new initiative has proved so popular is fantastic news for the district and means that the future can still look bright each spring for some of our most popular public spaces.”

In Morecambe the scheme is being jointly promoted by Lancaster City Council and Morecambe Town Council.  Anyone who is interested in adopting spring flowerbeds for 2018 should contact Morecambe Town Council by telephoning 01524 422929 or emailing clerk@morecambe.gov.uk to discuss the opportunities available.

Anyone who is interested in adopting beds in other parts of the district should contact Lancaster City Council direct by telephoning 01524 582491.

Summer bedding is not affected and will continue to be planted.
