Copeland’s four towns will show their support to the NHS and key workers through a series of floral tributes.
Copeland Council, with the support of Whitehaven, Cleator Moor, Egremont and Millom Town Councils, is planting tributes in four prominent locations.
Hundreds of blue Lobelia flowers and a rainbow of Begonias have been planted, or will be planted over the coming days, in Whitehaven, Cleator Moor, Egremont and Millom, accompanied by white stone lettering.
The tributes will be located at;
- The badge bed adjacent to the Marchon Club in Whitehaven
- The Clock Hill area of Cleator Moor high street, opposite the town’s Age Concern shop
- The Crab apple orchard site, opposite the cemetery at Egremont
- The Palladium flower bed in Millom
Copeland Council’s Parks and Open Spaces team has carried out the work with staff designing the tributes in house.
Mike Starkie, Mayor of Copeland, said: “This is a great example of our key workers showing their support for those on the front line.
“As a council, our colleagues are working incredibly hard to maintain the vast majority of our services right now and our parks team has been instrumental in keeping our open spaces tidy, well-kept, and safe for the public to enjoy on their daily exercise routes.
“And these tributes are a testament to the hard work, selflessness, and commitment of the team and we hope that everyone enjoys and appreciates the efforts that have been put into the design procuring materials and the planting and maintaining of the tributes.
“Thanks also goes to our four town councils for contributing towards the tributes.”
