As part of the
project to improve and restore Scarborough’s South Cliff Gardens, the Friends

support the project by sharing memories of the gardens or by submitting old
photos, postcards, general pictures, stories and comments to help them build an
archive of information.

heritage gathering events where people can share their memories and historic
material will be held at Scarborough Library on 2, 9 and 16 December between
10.00am and 1.00pm. All are welcome to add to the work already started by the
friends group on unlocking the hidden secrets of the gardens.

All Equipment Provided. Please wear suitable clothes, gloves and footwear. For further details please call Sheila Johnson on 07961966617
The 9th of July 2017 Garden Party was a wonderful day for Shuttleworth Garden. It was the
100th anniversary of
the gift of the gardens to the town by their creator Alfred Shuttleworth in 1917, and the 80th of the creation of the Miniature, or Fairy, Garden by the Scarborough Corporation in 1937/8. We celebrated that by a garden party where people enjoyed scones, cakes and delicious sweet things (Fairy cakes included!)
We were regally entertained by “Merry Melancoly” consisting of Simon Nisbett, lutenist and Jenny Hill, singer. The weather was ideal and Shuttleworth Gardens looked at their best.
Wheatcroft School came for a Litterpick around the Gardens
