Right Arrow New Garden at Ormskirk hospital
27 May 2009 at 10:47
Regular visitors to Ormskirk & District General Hospital may have noticed a change recently outside the main entrance as the garden area has been given a complete makeover.

Audrey Stuart, who manages the hospital shop, explains how this came about, “I have often noticed groups of people stood around waiting for taxis or to be picked up and thought we could do with some more seating in the area near the main entrance. I spoke to the facilities department and we decided the area just outside the main entrance could be used. It was cleared of most of the old plants that were there and a new patio area was laid with four benches for people to sit on and new plants were planted to brighten the area.

“The £8.000 needed to pay for it came from the hospital shop and the work was done by Lady Green Nurseries in Formby. Since it was done I have noticed lots of people using the benches, so it seems to be appreciated.”

Pictured in the new area are from left to right Pat Stuart, Gladys Quirk and Nick Morton, volunteers who work in the shop and Audrey and Ron Stuart who manage the shop.
