Planters to brighten up New Brighton

19th January 2011

Cllr Pat Glasman

The new planters have been installed for a little while now and as the flowers come into bloom they will make a real difference to Seabank Road.  They are definitely a cheerful addition to the street scene. Local shopkeepers are very pleased with them and I think happy that they are not being forgotten in the general emphasis on the Seafront lately. I especially like the bench and planter at the top of Magazine Lane at the junction with Seabank Road.

Unfortunately, on Friday night somebody attacked the planter outside the Post Office and plants were thrown around outside the shop and onto the canopy above but the staff did their best to rescue the planter. I hope this doesn’t happen too often, especially as the Post Office is such an essential hub in the community.
