Blackpool Civic Trust Commemorative Bench

The Civic Trust's 'Lest We Forget' commemorative bench has now been installed in the Fylde Memorial Arboretum, Moor Park Avenue. The bench has beeSn installed on a purpose-made concrete base diametrically opposite the wooden entrance to the Burma Star Association area of the Arboretum. This is a very appropriate place.

Devonshire Road Rock Garden Project

 

Blackpool Civic Trust has been working with the Friends of the Rock Gardens to uncover and restore the impressive and extensive rock formations of the Devonshire Rock Gardens, which were opened in 1938 and are the highest point in the west Fylde.

At present volunteers are working hard on the Vista, where the original large rocks were obscured and sometimes buried beneath overgrown shrubs and the slow accumulation of soil.  The view across the Gardens with its two ponds and waterfalls is now much clearer and the attractive rocks in the Vista’s flowerbed are no longer hidden from sight.
