Southport Visiter - - Front Page -

FLO­RAL planters have now been in­stalled at the cor­ner of Nevill Street and Bath Street, and have been planted up by the lo­cal Hote­liers As­so­ci­a­tion and Lord Street In Bloom.

Town cen­tre coun­cil­lor Tony Daw­son was one of the orig­i­nal Lord Street ‘Guerilla Gar­den­ers’ who planted out urns and planters when the coun­cil with­drew from pro­vid­ing them. The Liberal Democrat coun­cil­lor said: “This is a small but sig­nif­i­cant step by lo­cal peo­ple com­mit­ted to try to main­tain a vi­brant vis­i­tor econ­omy and a bet­ter en­vi­ron­ment for res­i­dents and hol­i­day-mak­ers alike.

“The hote­liers have an up­ward strug­gle and they are to be con­grat­u­lated for keep­ing up this good work.”
