Lions brighten Warkworth with planter box seats

Grant Henderson tries out the seat he made.

An enthusiastic response to two planter box seats placed outside the Warkworth Town Hall has encouraged Warkworth Lions to consider placing further seats elsewhere in Warkworth.

Warkworth Lions spokesperson Peter Henderson says the idea of the seats is to provide seating for those walking about town or waiting for events in the hall to start. Materials for the seats were supplied by Warkworth ITM and were put together by Lions member and handyman Grant Henderson (no relation to Peter).

The boxes have been planted with lavender, rosemary and other herbs.

Peter says the herbs are primarily there for the aroma – though if a Town Hall caterer suddenly found themselves short of a sprig of parsley or two, they would be available for that too.

Peter says Warkworth does not have an over-abundance of seats in public places and Lions will consider placing more. The next one could possibly be sited outside Stirling Sports on Queen Street.

He says Lions will be careful not to block pedestrian access ways or place them where they might be struck by a car door. He hopes that residents of The Oaks on Neville retirement village might be willing to look after the plants in the planter boxes.
