Make Brighton Council Provide a Gardener for Withdean Park


Hereby petition Brighton and Hove City Council (City Parks) to provide Withdean Park with a regular gardener to help protect our former National Lilac Collection which has been sadly neglected by the council for many many years.

The beds need regular weeding to keep the shrubs at their best. The Friends of Withdean Park volunteers can only do so much.  In some of the older lilac beds, sycamore saplings,brambles and ivy have been allowed to grow and hence spoil the beautiful lilacs.

Withdean Park is more beautiful than any other Brighton park, with 35 acres, with a large green space, woodland and a pond garden which brings pleasure to  many different people and children and should be protected.
