Liverpool City Council have today announced Croxteth Hall walled gardens have received almost £250k funding to nurture, maintain and improve the communal area.

Councillor Harry Doyle said: “We are absolutely delighted that we have been successful.

“We have plants from all over the world here, in the peach house which we are hoping to renovate”.

The community development comes in partnership with the National Lottery fund who have contributed over £2bn, supporting over 12,000 projects in the North.

Cllr Doyle spoke on a video for the Liverpool City Council on the importance of the natural world, and what they offer on their grounds in terms of long-term, essential benefits.
