Flower power is sprucing up city
hanging baskets are adorning rows of homes in Dingle - thanks to
Liverpool City Council. Alongside housing associations, the
city’s neighbourhood staff have been working with residents to
create the stunning baskets which brighten up people’s homes and
give communities a bit of a lift. Now, more than 1,000 baskets
adorn homes around the bread streets area of Dingle – and the
initiative has proved so popular it’s being rolled out across the
Councillor Steve Munby, the city’s cabinet member for neighbourhoods
and central ward councillor said:- “This initiative is
planting the seeds for community participation. These beautiful
plants really do make a difference – the project has uplifted the
whole area as it makes it a much brighter place to be in.
Everyone who takes part in the project is a winner and that is why
the council has set aside money which groups can apply for to assist
with bulbs, planting, equipment and installation.
Our neighbourhood staff are working across the city to help our
communities become a more pleasant place in which to live. If lots
more people take up the offer then our city will look even more
stunning than ever. In the past we have held numerous Respect
week and other initiatives to make areas clean and safe but now is
the time to go beyond crime and grime and towards a creative agenda
to make our neighbourhoods more beautiful.”
The council has funded the scheme through the Working Neighbourhoods
Fund and housing associations have also chipped in.
