Still in the midst of negotiations between the land owner and Wirral Council, New Ferry Butterfly Park will be opening as usual for the summer.
We're going all out this year, I'm working as an artist in residence there, we're going to have a small temporary sculpture trail in the park and are holding a grand opening on Sunday May 2nd with a bbq and art workshops to boot.
I am also looking for an empty shop in New Ferry to use primarily as a temporary visitor centre to help educate local people about the Butterfly Park and in part as an art studio where I hope to hold workshops in different art forms and other subjects such as conservation and gardening.
Anyone know how I would get in touch with commercial property owners in New Ferry, a lot of the empty spaces don't have to let signs up?
Will keep you all posted on developments.
