Marine Cove gardens get a splash of summer colour!
A splash of colour was introduced at Burnham-On-Sea's newly-refurbished
Marine Cove gardens on Saturday (September 10th) when a group
of residents took part in a community planting session.
Dozens of flowers were planted by nine residents, as pictured,
ahead of the park's grand re-opening later this month.
"Good progress was made on the work to introduce hundreds
of flowers in time for our opening ceremony on September 24th,"
Community Gardener Jacqui Strong told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
Further community planting sessions are planned for September
16th and 18th from 10am-midday when all are welcome to help.
As we reported earlier
this week, the official opening will also include a ceremonial
seafront parade of supporters dressed in 1920s costumes. Starting
at 10.45am on the jetty, the parade will make its way to Marine
Cove, where a ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held.
three-year Marine Cove refurbishment project has
been overseen by Sedgemoor District Council and part-funded
with £344,200 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
