The sea front and the town centre of Penarth was being smartened up for the summer today by the installation of the traditional floral displays in hanging baskets
On Penarth Esplanade parks department staff sed a hydraulic platform to reach the fixtures on the “Victorian” lampposts which support the baskets along the sea-front.
The work is carried out every year by the Vale of Glamorgan Council and this week staff have also been been installing the colourful displays on poles along part of Windsor Road.
In Penarth Town Centre some retailers – like the Ocho Lounge – have installed their own floral displays .Outside Bar 44 there is now a pair of fine shrubs planted in pots. …But alas not all the changes in the town centre have improved the look of Penarth.
The pair of evergreen potted shrubs which once gracved the front entrance of the Prezzo restaurant (which has now closed) have mysteriously disappeared.
