Fairhaven Lake and Gardens proudly celebrated the near completion of the ambitious Fairhaven Restoration Project on Tuesday 29 March with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the park.
The Mayor of Fylde, Cllr Elaine Silverwood, and the Leader of the Council, Cllr Karen Buckley, together cut the ribbon at the front of the freshly renovated Water Sports Centre to mark the incredible progress made so far.
Speaking before ward councillors, key project funders, contractors, volunteers and other stakeholders, Fylde Council officers and members of the Fairhaven team gave presentations on milestone achievements including the renovation of the Isaac Dixon Boathouse, the RSPB Fairhaven Lake Visitor Centre, and the café in the original 1986 golf club house.
Cllr Karen Buckley, Leader of the Council, said: “It was an honour to be part of the ceremonies marking this milestone. The Fairhaven staff, local volunteers and contractors have all worked diligently to bring this project close to completion, and the proof of their dedication can be clearly seen, from the beautiful landscaping and revitalised heritage buildings to the sheer breadth of clubs and activities we are able to host. Fairhaven Lake and Gardens are a unique and well-loved attraction for the borough, and we look forward to the new season with great anticipation.”
The improvements to the lake and grounds have been made possible through the Fairhaven Lake and Garden Restoration project, supported through the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Big Lottery fund – and there are more exciting developments yet to come.
