Bournemouth Fountain Gets Make-Over

The fountain outside the Bournemouth Pavilion is being lit up tonight at a special naming ceremony performed by the Mayor.

The 80 year old fountain - which is to be named ‘Jubilee Fountain’ in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee - recently had some initial improvement works including the installation of LED lighting.

Councillor Rod Cooper, Cabinet Member for Tourism, Leisure and Culture, said:

“I am delighted that the Mayor is to name this important Town Centre feature in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.  The Jubilee Fountain will use new coloured LED lights combined with the existing water fountains to create a spectacular effect on the Pavilion forecourt.”
This evening (14 June), weather permitting, will see The Jubilee Fountain lit up for the first time when The Mayor of Bournemouth, Councillor Philip Stanley-Watts, unveils the new name plaque.

 “This work represents another phase of renovation work to the Pavilion and its environment with the Council working in close partnership with BH LIVE to ensure that this Town Centre Listed building is well maintained for the future benefit of both residents and visitors.”
