Community groups help brighten up our high streets

Grange Neighbourhood Residents’ Association is just one of many community groups helping spruce up our high streets.

As well as creating Jubilee-themed floral tributes at the junction of Grange Mount and Grange Road West, the group tidied the grass verges and carried out weeding.

Jean Stapleton from Grange Neighbourhood Residents Association said, “Hopefully these flowers will put a smile on people’s faces and encourage them to support our high street businesses.”

Community planting events also took place at Laird Street, Seacombe, Liscard, Meols, Charing Cross and Victoria Road.

As well as planting flowers, the events saw benches installed at locations in Moreton Shore. Volunteers included YMCA, New Brighton in Bloom, Liscard Community Links, 5 Bars Rest, local shops and ward councillors. 

Earlier in the year 18 high street locations across the borough received a comprehensive deep ‘spring clean’, which included pressure washing and the removal of chewing gum, graffiti and weeds.

The improvements were paid for from the European Regional Development Fund which supports local businesses after the pandemic.
