Peoples’ Park Bench Project to mark Wellbeing Organisation’s 15th Birthday


A health and wellbeing social enterprise is donating park benches across several boroughs in the Liverpool City Region and it wants members of the public to choose where these benches should be located. 

The project is called ‘Peoples Park Benches’ and forms part of the organisations 15th birthday celebrations this month. A bench will be donated in each of the boroughs of Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool and St Helens, where the organisation has been operating for the last decade and a half.

Mark Swift Chief Executive of Wellbeing Enterprises said:

‘We’re delighted to mark our 15th year working with citizens to bring about the wellbeing improvements they want to see, by donating these park benches. We believe everyone should be able to make decisions about how resources are spent locally to enhance the community and we’re excited to see which locations citizens choose”.


With the support of each of the local councils Parks and Regenerations teams, several suitable locations for park benches have been identified in each borough. A Twitter poll for each borough will be launched each week for four weeks commencing from Monday 27th July to invite members of the public to choose their favourite location.

Each bench will be dedicated to the citizens of the borough with a plaque which will mention that its location has been selected through a public vote. The public can place their vote via the Twitter poll launched through Wellbeing Enterprises Twitter account here.
