WDC backs off using Christchurch Gardens tennis courts for car parking

Cllr Moira-Ann Grainger, Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhood Services says,

“In view of the concerns raised by residents and local ward Councillors, I have as Portfolio Holder, instructed the officers to amend the report and remove Christchurch Gardens from the proposals. There will be no changes to the Gardens.  A revised paper will be considered by the Council’s Executive next Wednesday.”

Well done everyone who expressed their views to WDC, officers or councillors

2017 Heart of England in Bloom Gold award


Leamington was awarded Gold in the Heart of England in Bloom competition; the result was announced at a ceremony on September 14th.  There was special praise for Jephson Gardens and Leamington Station gardens, saying these gardens “were a blaze of colour and all maintained to a very high standard” – see Leamington Courier. We think these displays look very pretty as well!

A huge thank you to all the station gardeners, some of them ready for action here, and to those who showed the judges around in July, and Janine for looking after the floral train.

A wonderful result.  Well done everyone.
