Judges from the Royal Horticultural society paid a visit on 3rd August to Murdishaw Community Centre and Runcorn East Railway Station.

The RHS were judging the “Murdishaw in Bloom” environmental project that is currently running from Murdishaw Community Centre and the WW1 garden at Runcorn East Railway Station. 

At the station the garden has been refreshed with additional planting and bark applied with a replica notice “To the trains”; while at Murdishaw Community Centre; Halton Borough Council (HBC), Riverside Housing and LHT have been working to revamp the area using the “Murdishaw in Bloom” scheme.  

They are holding a gardening week at Murdishaw Community Centre from Monday 24th August, sessions include working with local artist, HBC Open spaces, Assist and Earth skills.

Come along and plant some pots, paint, make a scare crow with Norton Priory or just help with gardening. It’s all free and everyone is welcome.
