June Update

The team met frequently throughout the month, to prepare the public garden areas for the Yorkshire in Bloom judging day (early July), and to make sure that all planters and barrier baskets looked their best. These filled out beautifully and the colour scheme and use of short dahlias provided real impact. Problems were encountered in the adjacent Patmos and Sensory garden, where vandalism destroyed several of the new rose bushes.

This was a busy month in terms of events too; the team had a stall at both the Country fair and the Agricultural show. Both of these event were good opportunities to talk to people, promote what we do, and advertise our local garden competition; we also gave away lots of free seeds.

We met with a representative of the British legion and are hoping to support them with their project to redevelop a neglected corner of the memorial garden in Centre Vale Park. Also we received grants from both the Ward Forum, and the Community Foundation.
