Following final completion of works ahead of last weekend’s Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Gardens have today been officially opened by Councillor Chad Chadwick, chairman of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, and Councillor Margaret Pinder, Mayor of Beverley.
The garden, which was supported by Beverley Town Council, was designed by the council’s streetscene services and includes a commemorative stone by Columbaria Company who were commissioned to produce a central feature for the garden.
Grass, flower beds and new benches have also been incorporated to replace the broken brick work there before.
It is hoped that the area will be appreciated by visitors and residents alike and will provide a timely reminder in future years of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations that took place in 2012.
Councillor Chadwick said:
“The gardens are a great addition to New Walkergate and Beverley and will provide a lasting legacy to celebrate Her Majesty’s 60 years on the throne.”
Councillor Margaret Pinder said:
“Beverley Town Council is delighted to have supported this project, which I’m sure will be enjoyed by both residents and visitors alike for many years to come.”
