Adopt a flowerbed chance for residents and businesses

Some of Swansea's most beautiful flowerbeds can now be adopted by residents and businesses.

Victoria Park Swansea

You can arrange an adoption of a bed in one of two prestigious Swansea Council public areas - Victoria Park or Singleton Park's Botanical Gardens.

A stainless steel plaque with an agreed engraving will stand in the adopted flower bed for three years.

The arrangement, which can begin with a simple enquiry through a council web page, mirrors a successful long-standing council scheme for the adoption of park benches.

The scheme will help the council cut costs and generate income to help meet the needs of residents now and in the future.

Cllr Mark Thomas, Swansea Council's Cabinet Member for Environment Services, said: "The adoption of a flowerbed or bench is a wonderful way for residents and businesses to help us maintain the outstanding quality of the council's parks and gardens.

"The adoptions can leave a legacy in a beautiful area, commemorate a loved one or promote a local company.

"I urge all those interested to find full details on our council website. You will help make Swansea a vibrant and colourful city - and a great place to live."

The Swansea Council Adopt a Flowerbed scheme applies to Victoria Park, Swansea's oldest park with an array of rose gardens, radiant shrubs and plants, and the Botanical Gardens, which boasts many unique blooms and plants.

Adoption costs £1,200 a year, with more information available at www.swansea.gov.uk/adoptaflowerbed

The Adopt a Bench scheme sees an engraved stainless steel plaque placed on a bench in the council's park gardens for 10 years. More information is available at www.swansea.gov.uk/adoptabench
