This is a big event, and Liverpool City Council's Culture Liverpool team want to make sure as many people as possible get involved in the run up, during and after the show.
They are working in partnership with other council teams including the school improvement service along with a number of external organisations such as National Museums Liverpool, and Liverpool Primary Care Trust. Working together means an education and participation programme can be delivered which aims to bring together the entire city in memory of the events which took place on 15 April 1912.
Ahoy! PSS urban green team invite you all to join us to prepare our boat for her maiden voyage across Anfield to her final mooring place at a local green space. Be prepared to get your hands dirty as we deck out the boat with a colourful spray of shrubs and flowers.
PSS will be promoting our new and exciting urban green team initiative by hosting a launching ceremony for a reclaimed vessel at Stanley Park over the 3 day event starting Friday 20th April.
We would like people to join us in planting up the boat to create a colourful arrangement of plants that will attract and help out variety of bees, butterflies and insects. The boat will be used as a community planter to encourage local people to get their fingers greener.
The public will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite name for the planter which will then be announced on Saturday at the official boat naming.
Anfield is a densely urbanised area where residents have little or no green space of their own and a common priority is the condition of the local environments. PSS received funding from Liverpool PCT natural choices grant and are working in partnership with Beautiful North and resident groups to make the most of what space is available for the benefit of the whole neighbourhood.
The PSS urban green team is a new initiative that will offer a free front garden tidy service for residents of Anfield who are unable to maintain it themselves providing them with a local information guide and encouragement to get involved in wider community activity.
To ensure the project is a huge success by reaching as many of those residents we are looking for committed volunteers to become members of the team. In return each volunteer will receive a development programme including accredited training and access to further opportunities.
PSS will also have a display in the community zone of the park with smaller activities and information about our services and details of how to get involved.
