‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ assessors visited the Pavilions Border garden off Wellington Road and the revamped library entrance on Denmark Street yesterday. They were very impressed with what they saw. Gerry and Ann and the Rose Street Gardeners from the Methodist Church have worked tirelessly to create and establish the Pavilions Border since 2013. It was a wilderness, now it’s a source of pleasure for the scores of people who walk that way each day.
The library planting is new for 2016. Alan, Linda, Morag, Mary and Bill, with help from many others, have turned a lacklustre shrubby area into a vibrant space and colourful.
The assessors will report on their visit in September. Our fingers are crossed and details will follow.
