Local gardeners have created a wildflower meadow set to produce colourful springtime blooms in The Helen Garden in Meads.

Friends of Meads Parks and Gardens, Eastbourne Borough Council’s Specialist Advisor and Neighbourhood First officers and staff from The Landscape Group rolled up their sleeves at two planting sessions. On the first occasion they planted 3,000 plants and the following week 7,000 bulbs.

The money for plug plants and bulbs was provided by Cllrs Kathy Smethers, Barry Taylor and Robert Smart through the council’s devolved budget scheme.

Terrie Rintoul, Chair of Friends of Meads Parks and Gardens, said, “It was a great team effort. We can’t wait for the spring to enjoy what promises to be a fabulous display.”
