The first phase of work was completed towards the end of the week commencing 21st November. Planters have been installed round the Monument and in Little Dockray. There is a bit more work to do to finish this first phase of work, reposition the waste bins in Little Dockray and under plant the trees with shrubs, flowers and bulbs.
Things are moving on apace. The cobbles in Little Dockray have been re-laid, waste bins relocated, and four planters placed in their final positions.Two new planters are being made and will sit alongside the remaining bench at the north of the street.
PACT has been working with the Vitality of Penrith (VoP) and local traders to green Penrith - see photos of the installed planters below. (Read about our separate St Andrews Churchyard renovation project.)
