Flora the statue of a Roman goddess,
was presented to the park in 1871 by Mr T H Fairhurst.
Park staff had been unable to clean Flora due to cost, age, condition and fragility of the statue.
Mrs Ithiel Mogridge, Director of Action Products Ltd, has donated enough Masonry Wash to give Flora a good wash and brush up, and demonstrated by cleaning parts of the statue shown below.

Flora, was a Roman goddess that made trees bloom, a pre-requisite for all fruits,
but later she became protector of the spring and everything that blooms, including flowers.
