Saturday 8th Sept, 12:00pm – 3:00pm Glasshouses, Victoria Park, Widnes WA8 7SU
Part of VPET’s Let the Light In project exploring the history of the glasshouses at Victoria Park from the late 1800’s to the present day.
There will be information on Victorian collectors of plants and butterflies, including Margaret Fountaine, a famous lepidopterist. We will have memory boxes available which explore key aspects of the history of the glasshouses, as well as the opportunity to plant up seeds of sensory plants which are great for sparking memories. Come and see what we have found so far or share your own knowledge of the glasshouses.
