A picturesque town with more than 900 Grade II listed houses and public buildings, Port Sunlight was founded in 1888 by the industrialist William Lever as a self-contained community for his soap factory workers.
The village today is an immaculately preserved example of early town planning. A prototypical garden city, Port Sunlight’s manicured gardens and parklands offer abundant green space for the village’s residents and visitors, while cultural institutions like the Lady Lever Art Gallery and The Gladstone Theatre provide access to the arts.
With just 2,000 residents, Port Sunlight is home to a small but thriving community
My item is a flowerpot cat called Puss-in-Mask.
I decided on doing a cat for the village competition, as all my flowerpots were black, so the idea of a black cat was born. I had the idea of calling it Puss-in-Boots, but I thought that during the difficult times we are going through, that a cat wearing a mask was a better representation. I enjoyed doing the cat and made his mask out of material with cats on, an exact copy of the mask I have myself.
