St. Mary's triangle, which marks the entrance into town from both the Lincoln and Market Rasen roads, has been completely re-landscaped by Louth Rotary in Lincolnshire. The project leader Rob Hall both designed the renovation the area. Along with other Rotary members, Rob carried out much of the preparatory work. The hard landscaping was done professionally, with money raised by the club, along with grants also sourced by Rotary. Rob says, “for as long as he can remember, the triangular island has looked unkempt, overgrown and neglected, and not a suitable welcome to the town. The new attractive design includes a paved area surrounded by low growing plants and shrubs, along with maintenance-free artificial grass. There will soon be a bench in the paved section to create a restful oasis for walkers. The design also includes a gravelled walkway connecting St. Mary's Lane to Elkington Road to prevent pedestrians having to walk on the road, as in the past”.
Rotary members and friends formed a socially distanced work party to create the garden element of the project. A large number of various plants and shrubs were planted, all donated by local residents, who the Rotary club thanked. We have also been encouraged by the numerous complimentary remarks by passers-by as we have been completing the project. We look forward to seeing the greenery mature and flourish in the near future and are confident that the triangle will create a pleasing and attractive welcome to the town for both residents and visitors for many years to come.
