Pride Cultural Development Fund grants
A further £10,000 was granted to Preston Manor and City Parks to improve the planting in the two flower beds at the corners of the Manor facing the Croquet Lawn, install period-appropriate, bow-top fencing around these flower beds to protect them and to deter anti-social behaviour and to install additional CCTV cameras to key points across the rear elevation of the Manor and under the veranda, to monitor an area known to be vulnerable to anti-social behaviour.
Any funding remaining will either contribute to the plans to add orientation signage to the grounds, help produce a new visitor leaflet for the whole site, or contribute towards the repair of the veranda. Funding has also been allocated to improve the Coronation Garden at the north end of Preston Park, one priority being the repair and refurbishment of the shelter on the eastern edge of the garden.
