Wyre Council has received initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and the Big Lottery Fund (BIG) to continue restoring The Mount Pavilion and Gardens in Fleetwood.

The Heritage Lottery Fund has today announced that initial funding of 142,900 has been awarded to help the council develop a proposal to transform the landward side of the Grade II registered gardens, including pavilion, rose garden and gate lodge, to its original Victorian landscape.

The seaward side was restored last year thanks to a 1m personal donation from Mrs Doreen Lofthouse.
