Local partnership restores Woodchurch Memorial Garden
A memorial garden in Woodchurch has been restored to its former glory – thanks to a partnership between youth charity HYPE (Helping Young People Everywhere), the Wirral West Constituency Committee and local partners.
HYPE have worked to bring the Memorial Garden on Hoole Road back into use after it fell into disrepair. The garden was established to provide a place of reflection for people who have lost loved ones on the estate.
Local school children will now work with Merseyside Police Community Support Officers to keep the garden tidy.
The project has seen the site cleared of weeds and overgrowth with new benches and planters, whilst retaining the original features of the garden, including memorial plaques supplied by local funeral director Sue Porter.
