Max Henshaw Jr said: “Very happy to announce that I have been asked by Liverpool FC  to bring-to-life their ideas for a landscape garden, displaying at this year’s Southport Flower Show! A complete honour to be recognised by this great club… My club!

“I was proud to be part of a panel in the Eights Lounge, Anfield in a Dragon’s Den like scenario, to help choose the right project that some of the local children from Liverpool have designed.

“The theme of the garden is to help raise mental health awareness. 

“We will create a safe and tranquil environment for people who enter the area. I think all the designs brought forward did just that.

“All the ideas were outstanding. The children did brilliantly. It was so hard to choose a winner, but we did!

“I look forward to getting the plans ready for my team and we will complete the task to the best of our ability with the kids’ hard work and the good cause at the front of our mind.

“I’d like to give a big thank you to Matt, Tracy, the rest of the team at LFC and all those involved from the LFC Foundation.

“Be sure you come and check the finished project out at Victoria Park Southport from the 17th to the 20th of August 2023.” 

Southport Flower Show has a superb line-up this year.
