Platinum Jubilee celebrated with flowers in King’s Lynn

A floral display has been created in King’s Lynn to mark the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen.

Created by Jason Wells with help from Sam Martin, who work for the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk, a specially created badge bed in Tower Gardens marks the occasion with flowers. There are a mixture of plants such as Begonias, Pelargoniums, Marigolds, Dahlias and some Cannas as centre pieces.

Cllr Brian Long, Cabinet member for Corporate Services, said: “The message in the Tower Gardens display is to mark the historic occasion of the Queen’s 70 years of service and I’m pleased that everyone in the borough can visit and see it. These plants add a nice splash of colour to our green spaces. It looks stunning and should be in place for people to come and see until early November.”

The Tower Gardens display was completed on Monday 23 May, the same week new bedding was planted by the public open space teams in the Walks, King’s Lynn, and Downham Market Town Centre. New bedding will be planted in Esplanade Gardens, Hunstanton, next week. 

Throughout the summer months the public can enjoy watching the plants bloom and in the autumn a whole new batch of plants will be bedded in.

  • Veterans Join with Greyfriars School in Making Remembrance Bird Boxes for The Walks

    Veterans from the Bridge For Heroes Armed Forces charity joined with students from Greyfriars School to prepare Remembrance Bird Boxes for The Walks.

    The boxes were made at the Bridge For Heroes Activity Centre, based in Nelson House on the North Lynn Industrial Estate, which has a fully equipped carpentry workshop and was set up to enable veterans to engage in meaningful activities, these including, in addition to carpentry, art, photography, crafts and amateur radio skills and recreational pursuits. 

    The Centre, which is open to veterans and their dependants, has seen a gradual increase in beneficiaries using the facility in the year since it first opened and it was the carpentry class that decided to make the bird boxes, having been told that many of those already in the walks were falling into disrepair.
