Hope Park campus to host community open garden event for the publicThursday 16 June 2016
Members of the public are invited to explore our Hope Park campus, as the University opens its gates to become one of Childwall in Bloom’s ‘open gardens’.
On Saturday 18th June, local volunteer-led community group Childwall in Bloom will host a special afternoon of tea, cake, music and flowers at a free event held on the Rector’s Lawn.
Now in its fifth year, the annual event will be officially opened by the Deputy Lord Mayor and runs from 2pm – 4pm.
Margaret Weighill, a member of the group, said: “We are always grateful for the University’s help and support, and without the Open Garden - which is our major fund raising event - we would not be able to put on such a great floral display around the area.”
Highlights include a plant sale, volunteer gardeners on hand to answer all your questions, and music from Allerton Brass Band.
Hope has a long-standing relationship with Childwall in Bloom, supporting the community group on its mission to clean up and maintain local green spaces and floral displays around the area.
