Julian Meers Italian Garden
This terraced garden is named after QPF’s founder, Julian Meers, with an Italian reference to the very splendid Italianate style St Raphael’s Catholic Church right opposite it.
The restoration of this once mightily overgrown area took many months, and in doing so has unveiled its original Victorian terracing. We’ve gone for a drought-tolerant and Mediterranean style planting scheme.
Bringing this forgotten unusual historic section of the promenade back to its former glory gripped our volunteers for a long time and caused many cheers from the wider public.
