Lyme lifeboat anniverary celebrated in blooms
Gardening team help the RNLI say it with flowers ahead of birthday celebrations
VISITORS to Lyme’s Langmoor Gardens are enjoying a blooming work of art, with a maritime theme.
A flower bed designed and planted by the town council’s head groundsman Barry Trott and his team is a colourful tribute to the RNLI’s 150 years of service to the town.
The anniversary is being marked during Lifeboat Week later this month with a special event on July 28.
Barry and his colleagues planted the flower bed with lobelia, pyrethum, marigold and begonia - a total of 4,500 plants in all.

He said: “It took three of us a whole day to plant but we are delighted with the result. It was a real challenge and gave us great satisfaction.
“The plants should remain in full colour until the first frost.”
