Our Latest News - October

October Update

This is traditionally the month for our annual ‘Presentation Evening’ held at the Central Methodist Church, when awards are presented to the winners of our local Garden Competition. This year’s was well attended and we were pleased to have the Mayor, Councillor Tony Greenwood, to open the proceedings. He surprised us by giving special awards to our most long-standing members Sheila Greenwood, Jean Butterworth, and Jean Crowther; their awards were: the ‘Golden Spade’, the ‘Silver Shovel’ and a decorative plate.

Another very busy month for the team; members met every Sunday to work on various public garden spaces. These included Darwin House lawn, where Sheila and Jean planted hundreds of crocus bulbs, donated by the Rotary club. Work continued too at Patmos garden, where team members thinned out perennials and added hebes for variety.

The summer planting in planters and barrier baskets lasted well and remained colourful, however this is the month for renewal; it was replaced with a winter/spring bedding of cheerful, hardy violas, and last year’s bulbs and some cinerarias were recycled. The recent acquisition of a small greenhouse means that recycling and reusing plants will be more viable.

Our new signage was put in place on all three main road approaches to the town.
