SCHOOLCHILDREN planted snowdrops in memory of a man who dedicated his time to preserving a Neston park.
Friends of Stanney Fields recognised long-standing group member Barrie White with a commemorative planting event.
Barrie, who passed away last year, was remembered with the beautiful winter flowers, kindly donated by Ness Gardens where Barrie was also a volunteer.
Children from Woodfall Primary School’s Ecoproject helped with the planting, along the entrance near the British Legion.
Mary Lavery, Greenspace project officer, said: “The snowdrops will be an appropriate annual reminder of Barrie, who was an active member of the friends group for many years.
“He was an enthusiastic and committed member, always keen to encourage young people to enjoy the park and he is missed by many.
“The snowdrops will die back over the spring but return each year to produce an annual display in the winter which can be enjoyed by park users.
“We felt this was the most appropriate way to recognise Barrie’s hard work and dedication both here and at Ness Gardens and his love for plants and the outdoors.”
