We live in such a wonderful place here in Browns Bay, full of amazing people and groups. Nothing emphasises this more than the great effort being put in by different community groups of late to make the Town Centre a better place.
Before Christmas, Rotary, the businesses association and Lionel, from the council’s graffiti team, painted the skateboard park and seats on the beach front in some very vibrant colours.
Since then, the business association has collaborated with Rotary Browns Bay and Landscape Solutions Ltd, to upgrade all the gardens in the town centre. This has involved clearing all the gardens of weeds, turning the soil and as the plants are available from Landscape Solutions, replanting the plots.
We have a theme going for all the gardens using bronze flax and liriope. Each garden we replant gets some new soil and is covered with bark once all the new plants are put in. So far, the only gardens to have the new plants are the ones in Beachfront Lane and as I write this, the liriopes have yet to be planted. However, we have cleared most of the gardens that are being replanted, as pictured.
This is not a quick fix – but we are getting there. I would like to thank the following Browns Bay businesses who have lent their support to the project in various ways: Soulshine, BB Picture Framers, Red Cross, Bath Boutique, Unique and Mitre 10 Browns Bay.
And just to let everyone know, we haven’t forgotten to finish the tables on the beachfront. Plans are in place to finish the last two picnic tables and stain/varnish all the table tops plus replace some of the damages planks.
