Penny Lane Meadows is currently a waste-ground, overgrown and unkempt of approximately an acre in size. We would like to transform half of that area into a native UK wildflower meadow as it's focal point. We would also like to install 12-15 raised beds for the local nursery, school and residents to grow their own and encourage a wider age range into the Meadows. The site is on Penny Lane enclosed by a long sandstone wall, which we wish to grow wisteria the length of, draping over into Penny Lane itself creating a stunning spectacle for the local community and visitors alike, after all it is Penny Lane, one of the most famous streets in the world.

What we'll deliver:

  • Create a Wildflower Meadow
  • Build raised beds for the school/nursery/locals to grow their own.
  • Plant Wisteria along the wall, draping onto Penny Lane.

Why it's a great idea:

As the Meadows site currently stands anything would be an improvement, but we intend create a stunning wildlife haven and focal point on one of the most famous streets in the world. We know from experience the best way to measure the success of a project is the number of people and wildlife making the place their own. The surrounding terraced houses have only back yards, we intend to create a garden for all on their doorstep. The transformation of the Meadows will also encourage visitors to the city to stop off and take a breath in a beautiful wildflower meadow, rather than driving past what is currently a wasteland and an embarrassment. In addition to planting and transforming the site in order to encourage local people and tourists alike to use the space we hope to convert a shipping container into a cafe which will entice even more people into the Meadows and the outdoors. Creating a sense of civic pride and ownership for the local community.
