Our Latest News - September

September Update

Thanks to some sunnier drier weather the summer bedding survived well and continued to give colour, though autumn was clearly making its presence felt. The sunflowers on Pollination Street flowered beautifully and put on a grand display for the IET Harvest Festival. We were blessed with a glorious sunny day and were kept very busy. Thank you to all the lovely people who came to our stall and took home bunches of herbs that we had collected from the town’s many herb gardens (thanks IET), including the Community Herb garden opposite the Cricket Club. It was great to share tips about how to use the herbs; one lady suggested a tasty pasta dressing of sage, garlic & olive oil – sounds delicious.

Three of our members attended the Yorkshire in Bloom awards ceremony in York to collect our silver gilt medal and a very well deserved ‘Community Champion’s’ award for Sheila Greenwood. As many people will know, Sheila was a founding member of Todmorden in Bloom and is a driving force of the group. We felt very pleased that her hard work has been recognised in this way.

Discussions have been taking place with regard to holding an ‘Open Gardens’ event next year. Offers of help from Janet Battye were welcomed. Plans to improve the planting in areas of the ‘Sensory Garden’ to add more scented & textural plants are also under way.
