PRINCESS DIANA MEMORIAL GARDEN RETURNS TO ITS GLORY - CITY COUNCIL

February 21, 2008 4:52 PM

Cambridge City Council has announced that roses will be coming back very soon to the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Garden.

Lib Dem Councillors are happy to report that roses are to be replanted in the raised marble beds of the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Garden by the end of March. There will be supplementary herbaceous planting to protect the roses, which in the past have been subject to vandalism.

This planting will be undertaken within the existing Council budget, so no new spending is required.

Executive City Councillor for Arts and Recreations, Julie Smith, said:

"I am delighted that roses will be replanted this spring and am sorry that people were concerned that they were being removed.

"There have been problems with the quality of the soil, and vandalism in the past but I'm optimistic that our dedicated Streetscene staff will do all they can to ensure that the garden is returned to its former glory."
