Saltburn Spring Seminar to discuss Valley Gardens

Redcar_and_Cleveland_Borough_CouncilRESIDENTS of Saltburn are being encouraged to attend a seminar to discuss future plans for Saltburn Valley Gardens.

Following on from a Symposium held in 2015, the Spring Seminar aims to bring residents up to date and to seek support for further work to be completed in the gardens.

The seminar is taking place on Thursday, April 14 at 6pm until 8pm at the Community Theatre in Saltburn.

A series of talks will be held, including a look in the Valley Gardens’ past (From 1861 until recently) by historians Tony and Cath Lynn. An update will also be given by council officers on the recent improvements to the Valley Gardens.

Cllr Helen McLuckie, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods at Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, said: “This seminar will be a great way to communicate with residents to discuss future plans for the Valley Gardens.

“There are many features within the area including the Saltburn War Memorial, Woodland Centre, Albert Memorial, Italian Gardens, Marske Mill site, areas of open space and ancient woodland, so it will be great to see what ideas come from the seminar.”

Cllr Philip Thomson, Ward Member for Saltburn, said: “We’re interested in discussing the land owned by the council which stretches from the Viaduct to Cat Nab.

“Whilst some progress has been made in reinstating features and making improvements at Saltburn Valley Gardens, there is still work to be done.

“I look forward to the presentations, which will take an interesting insight into the past, present and future of the Gardens, but I am particularly looking forward to speaking with residents for their thoughts and ideas.”

Entry to the seminar is free, but residents are encouraged to register at Saltburn Library in advance.
