Kings Gardens Volunteers Southport May 15th, 2014 jmr jmr Latest News Latest Notices Shares Comments A big recruitment drive for volunteers to help at King’s Gardens, Southport has just been launched. Sefton Council is looking for a new team of volunteers to work on all aspect of the gardens. They are looking for people with many different interests to help at the gardens with an array of roles available which are not all focused on gardening. As King’s Gardens is a community led project, volunteering forms a big part of this. Southport’s historic seafront King’s Gardens were awarded more than £4 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and the Big Lottery Fund (BIG) through their Parks for People programme. It is one of the largest current park restoration projects in the UK and is entirely externally funded. Some of the volunteer roles include: Friend of King’s Gardens Visitor Centre Volunteer Gardening Volunteer Events Volunteer Wildlife Volunteer Eyes & Ears Volunteer The King’s Gardens restoration project is nearing completion and it is hoped the new Visitor Centre will open during the summer.
