The council plants and maintains a large number of public flower beds across the district, most of which are in prominent locations.
Having made a decision last year to stop planting flower beds with spring blooms, Lancaster City Council launched a scheme which gave people who live, work and want to take pride in where they live the opportunity to help towards the cost of planting.
Those who kindly helped to add a splash of colour to spring flowerbeds at some of most frequently visited places in Lancaster and Morecambe this year included the Winter Gardens, Briggs Shoes, Venus and Cupid Arts Trust, Morecambe Bay Primary School, a number of residents and Lancaster and Morecambe BIDs.
Flower beds in Morecambe that are available for adoption include Happy Mount Park, West End Gardens, Morecambe Train Station and various beds along the promenade including those at the Eric Morecambe statue. A number are also available in other parts of the district including several beds in Lancaster city centre.
All those taking part in the scheme will receive recognition of their contribution with the placing of a special plaque in their adopted beds as well as a mention on Lancaster City Council’s website.
Anyone who is interested in adopting public flower beds in time for the planting of spring blooms this autumn should contact Lancaster City Council direct by telephoning 01524 582491.
Summer bedding is not affected and will continue to be planted.
