Help us keep the Long Gardens looking beautiful

Cheltenham Borough Council is urging residents to help keep the Long Gardens, in front of the Municipal Offices on the Promenade looking beautiful.

Many residents have been walking through the grass area which divides the flower beds and have been wearing the grass away. The council has placed grass matta, a plastic surface on the turf, which gives a solid surface for people to walk on and allows soil and grass seed to be placed in between the plastic surfacing. As the grass grows, the matta will become part of the landscape and will protect the turf.

With spring approaching, CBC would like to encourage people to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Long Gardens, sitting on the benches or having a picnic on the grass, but would urge residents not to walk through the area which divides the flowerbeds and to place cigarette butts in the bins provided.
