Bulb planting completes Wigan Road improvement project

In April, councillors, local residents and Edge Hill Students’ Union were involved in a project planting shrubs to improve an open space on Wigan Road in Ormskirk. Now an autumn tidy up of the area close to School House Green and planting hundreds of bulbs has given the area a further boost.

Adrian said, “The area was already looking better with the shrubs we planted, but the area needed an end of season tidy up and the bulbs we planted will give the area a real splash of colour next spring. Thanks to everyone who helped especially students from Edge Hill."

Jess Martin from Edge Hill Students’ Union said, “Students from Edge Hill were involved in the shrub planting in April. Students are involved in hundreds of hours of volunteer activity every year and it’s great to have a project like this at the start of the academic year to get new students involved.”
