Labour Councillors, Richard Silvester and Martin Donaghy, were joined by school children to plant flowerbeds for Bolton’s newest park, Elizabeth Park in the Town Centre.
Groups from St Peter and St Paul’s Roman Catholic Primary School, Gilnow Primary School, Pikes Lane Primary School and Bolton Parish Church Primary School all took part.
The park is named in tribute to our late Queen and will stand forever as a tribute to her years of dedicated service to our country.
Cllr Silvester said:
“Bolton is unusually blessed in its parks, playing fields and green spaces, which have a vital role to play in the town’s regeneration.
“Elizabeth Park is key piece in the council’s ambitious plans to reinvent this part of the town centre, linking in with the recently refurbished central library around the corner, the market’s soon-to-be-opened food hall and the new homes just across the road.”
Cllr Donaghy said:
“I’d like to thank the schools for coming down to the park and the children for all their hard work helping ready it for the public.
“It was a great opportunity for the children to learn about nature and get their hands dirty, and I hope they’ll keep visiting the park for years to come and remember that they helped to create it.
“Come spring I expect they will be amazed to see that the flowers are as a tall as they are.”
