Popular event now to be held biennially


undefinedA gardens event run by a Wirral church this Easter was very successful despite the cold weather. It drew visitors from as far afield as Mold and Manchester. Pictured is a garden themed on the denial of Christ by Peter � from the Easter Gardens project run by St Michael's Church, Newton, West Kirby.

The event was so popular that the parish is making it a biennial event – and hoping for warmer weather at Easter 2015.

The wider community around St Michael’s is widely involved in the gardens project. The idea is that local residents make floral displays in their gardens to represent aspects of Holy Week – including Palm Sunday, the Last Supper, the Empty Tomb, Good Friday, the Garden of Gethsemane, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection.

Floral displays are placed in front and side gardens so they can easily be seen from the public pavements.
