BARMOUTH RESORT IMPROVEMENT GROUP

THE BENCH PROJECT

HOW THE IDEA WAS TURNED TO REALITY

To accompany our Palm Tree Project, we decided to add new Benches to the Promenade wall in the existing gaps. Over time we have filled these, and created new sections with the help of Gwynedd Council Officer Phil Cousins. They really compliment the work we have already done so far and add to the special feel and attraction of the Promenade as a whole, as well as being a perfect place to stop and relax and look out to sea.


Over the years,  we have replaced some of the  trees and continued to water, feed, and generally look after them with love and care.  Other Volunteers have helped too, which shows what a truly valued addition these trees are to the promenade.  We recently replaced half of the pots at an expense of nearly £12,000, and will be replacing the others in due course when funds have been raised.

BENCH SPONSORSHIP

We have a variety of sponsors on and have completed the area from the Bath House to the Arbour Hotel, and now by the Coast Guard Station, and they are a great addition to the Promenade.


The Benches were designed by Matthew Harris, and are hand made by local craftsman Bruce Evans, They have been placed on the existing “cock and hen wall” along the promenade.

Barmouth Town Council kindly sponsor 4 Benches and have been very supportive throughout. There are now over 50 Benches, and money has been raised from many kind  individual sponsors.
