Friends restore fountain base

vauxhall park fountainAfter many years of being knocked by passing vehicles, the base around the fountain was in a terrible state. As it seemed unlikely that there would ever be money from the Council’s budget to repair the damage, the Friends of Vauxhall Park decided to use the reserves they have built up from the many kind donations from their members for the job.

Peter Hilliard, a master stonemason, has restored the base and we hope that passing vehicles will give it more of a wide berth in future. The colour of the stone will tone down as the years go by!
