Despite the recession, Hove Businesses have dug deep into their pockets to sponsor the spectacular display at the city’s floral clock this year.
As the jewel in the crown of City in Bloom, the Palmiera Square botanical chronometer is a riot of colour, welcoming visitors to the west of the city and reminding us that Hove’s businesses mean business when it comes to creating a beautiful city for everyone to enjoy.
City Leaders Andrew Nichols and Jill Humphrey, Chair and Vice Chair of the Hove Business Association were joined by Brighton & Hove City Councillor Geoffrey Theobald, City Gardener, Paul Spencer along with Hove Town Centre Manager, Gavin Stewart to celebrate the inauguration of this year’s display.
Hove Business Association and Hove Business Partnership have joined forces to fund the display and together with the support of City in Bloom, have helped to make central Hove a delightful part of the city to visit, shop and work in.
Andrew Nichols, Chair of Hove Business Association said, ‘As the voice of Hove’s business community, we wanted to make a strong statement about what a great part of the city Hove is. By sponsoring the floral clock we have helped create a highly visible centre piece that will be enjoyed by thousands of people every day. Although the recession continues on, we have actively helped to brightened up the city for the benefit of everyone.’
Roger French, Chair of the Hove Business Partnership added, ‘A more attractive city reduces crime, encourages investment and is simply a better place for people to be. By joining up with the Hove Business Association, we can move one step closer to achieving our aims of being a safer, cleaner and more attractive part of the city’.
