Jubilee Gardens is the 100 year old Promenade Sunken Gardens by Gynn Square in Blackpool
The Friends of Jubilee Gardens is a new group of like minded individuals who are passionate about looking after this popular open space.
Thank you to Tesco Bags of Help!
The Friends have already transformed the tidiness of the gardens, built in 1915, and with the funds which they received from Tesco Bags of Help in 2017 they have bought shrubs and plants which volunteers are planting in flowerbeds to restore the gardens to their former glory for the enjoyment of the community and visitors.
More about Friends of Jubilee Gardens
As a group, we are aware of the recent cuts to Blackpool Council Departments budgets and realise that the way public spaces were funded and managed in the past has now changed.
We want the gardens to be well maintained and want to play our part in supporting other Agencies and Council Departments in achieving this aim.
To make this happen, involvement from the local community is vital and needs to be nurtured and encouraged. We have to play our part in giving our time and making sure our concerns are heard.
Held every week on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Tuesdays – 10 til 12 noon (meet by Blue Light Memorial end)
Saturdays – 11-1pm (meet by waterfall)
The Tuesday sessions are currently being held off site for the next few weeks as we are preparing reclaimed sleepers from the gardens and will be making two large compost beds with them.
We ALWAYS need help with –
• Bench and Handrail Painting
• Litter Picking
Any amount of time you can donate will be greatly appreciated.
If its raining, then the planned event will not go ahead.
If anyone would like to join in just turn up on the day.
