As work begins on restoring the gardens at a historic Fylde hall, the team behind the project want the support of an enthusiastic trainee.

Work is now under way to restore the gardens at Lytham Hall and Heritage North West, which is leading the scheme, want the help of a part-time horticulture trainee to work on the project.

In doing so they will complete a year-long certificate in practical horticultural skills through the WFGA (Women’s Farm and Garden Association).

This summer Chris Cannon completed her horticultural traineeship through the WFGA scheme at Lytham Hall.

She said: “Working alongside a knowledgeable gardener for a year gave me the practical experience and confidence I needed to back up the theoretical knowledge gained from my Royal Horticultural Society courses for a career change. I now work as part-time gardener in a beautiful estate in Lancashire.”
