Hamilton to be spruced up for spring
Floral hanging baskets and displays are to be installed in Hamilton to mark the start of spring.
Steven De Silva, the Corporation of Hamilton's superintendent of parks, said: “Our staff have been very busy preparing floral hanging baskets through the winter month to have them ready for all to enjoy in time for the spring season”.
Mr De Silva highlighted the efforts of Marcus Ming, who worked to prepare the baskets.
He said: “We are very proud of Marcus and his expert development and care for more than one hundred floral baskets.”
Carlos Brum, the corporation staff member responsible for mosaic planters around Hamilton, has also created a colourful city bench that has been placed in front of City Hall, on Nellie's Walk.
The bench was named The Charlotte Bench to mark the work that Charlotte Rees, along with her sister, Helen ‘Nellie' Rees, did to beautify Hamilton with tree, shrub and floral plantings.
Mr De Silva said: “Years ago the city dedicated Nellie's Walk to Helen Rees in commemoration of her contributions, and it is only fitting that her sister, Charlotte, has something to honour her as well. Carlos has produced a beautiful bench for the public to enjoy.”
Mr De Silva thanked Pembroke Tile & Stone, which donated material.
The City's parks staff have also visited schools and given presentations, as well as offering tours of the City Plant Nursery on Laffan Street, where schoolchildren learnt about the importance of green spaces.
Schools should contact the Corporation at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a visit to the plant nursery.
