Work is due to start on a commemorative Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Garden that will see two shrub beds outside the Guildhall and Library in Wrexham refurbished.
The project will involve local children from Alexandra School making six mosaics which will be put up in the garden. They will all show pictures related to this year’s Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Cllr Bob Dutton, Lead Member for the Environment, said “The Queen’s Jubilee Garden is a fitting tribute to Her Majesty’s 60 years of service to the nation. It will also serve as a reminder of the tremendous year that we have had in Wrexham and throughout the UK which has lifted spirits during times of particular hardship for many. As it is located in a very busy area it will also be enjoyed by a large number of residents and of course visitors to the town centre.”
Works will start on 29 October and will last approximately two weeks. During the period a disabled space in the Library car park will be out of use to allow for the deliveries of large stone and materials. Wrexham Council says they apologise if this causes any inconvenience but due to the size of the delivery vehicle expected it was not possible to find an alternative delivery area.
The path around Llwyn Isaf will also be closed for short periods as works to remove the existing large stone sculptures by the library takes place. An alternative route is being made available.
Planting will include Heuchera, Cyclamen and Pulmonarias many of which will be re-used from the existing planted areas in the area. The existing trees will also be incorporated into the final design.
