On Tuesday 31st October, the Friends of King's Gardens were very pleased to take delivery of two new garden urns and pedestals and to have them installed in the community garden, opposite the Royal Clifton hotel.
This is the final finishing touch to the Heritage Lottery Fund project in conjunction with Sefton Council which has seen the transformation of the gardens over the past five years at a cost of £5,5m.
The Friends have been very busy raising funds by organising various events in the gardens and some of these funds were put towards the purchase of the urns which were largely funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The urns were made by Torstone in Somerset and are described as 'Grand Victorian'. They replace two broken urns and pedestals which have been salvaged to make one complete urn and pedestal and relocated to the nearby sensory garden area.
The Friends will now be busy planting up the urns to add some colour to the gardens over the winter months.
If you are interested in volunteering in the gardens then please do get intouch there is so much to do and extra help and support is always welcome.
