Summer days are long gone but gardening continues! Our team were out every Sunday morning this month, ensuring town displays look their best.
Members have been working on the ‘town gate’ garden, removing weeds clearing overgrown shrubs and planting wallflowers.
We were pleased to have the help of our newest volunteers Sue Clarke and Geoff Woodward to help with the removal of summer bedding and its replacement with bulbs and winter bedding violas.
Geoff has been particularly active in supporting gardening at the ‘triangle’ in Walsden near the post office, and we hope to support him in this.
Winter planting was carried out this year at Patmos garden, which enabled the team to tidy the site in readiness for the ‘Great British High Street’ judges who were focusing on Burnley road.
This is a new competition for our town, fingers crossed that we do well.
Our annual ‘Presentation Evening’ which was held in Central Methodist Chapel, was well attended, and as usual proved to be a lovely sociable occasion, where the talents of our local gardeners can be celebrated.
This was attended by the mayor Andy Hollis; and the TIB team provided a tasty buffet.
Our monthly planning meetings at Todmorden Community Resource Centre continue, and it was agreed that our AGM will take place on Sunday December 2nd at 10.30; this meeting is open to the public.
