A busy enjoyable time for our team, including Sunday morning work sessions, first with Kidsfest, where families had fun making and decorating Christmas wreaths at our Kidsfest stall.
Our AGM was well attended, and reports by our chairwoman Jean Butterworth and treasurer Geoff Greenwood were very positive. We thank all those who have supported and made donations this year; they are much appreciated.
To round off the year we enjoyed a lovely festive meal at the Hare and Hounds. We would like to wish all supporters and local gardeners a very happy Christmas.
A quieter gardening month, but there has been lots of work ‘behind the scenes’ planning for the year ahead and searching for sources of funding.
The famous ‘Betty’s’ tea room’s ‘Trees for Life’ fund is something we intend to bid for. We shall also consider the ‘Postcode Lottery’.
As usual we will be entering the Yorkshire in Bloom annual competition.
Sunday morning gardening sessions continued through the month, dead heading and tidying the planters, also removing debris and leaves.
Funding efforts continue, with applications to ‘Betty’s’ Trees for Life fund, the Postcode Lottery, Todmorden Town Council and requests for support from local businesses all submitted. As usual, we shall also be selling summer hanging baskets to local businesses, for which watering is provided.
We plan to extend our Friends of Todmorden Station commitment to include support for planting at Walsden station; new planters will be located and planted up by our team on the station platform.
