Calling everybody who lives in Wilberfoss who wants to do a bit of gardening!!
There are currently 11 volunteers catering for the needs of our planting pockets by watering and weeding. There is no need to have experience to be a volunteer, or to have great knowledge of plants (we don't ourselves as we are just amateur gardeners who want to keep our village looking tidy and colourful for the enjoyment of everybody). That is what was so rewarding when we won the Gold Award, we are not professionals, just people who like gardening.
Could you help us?
Our borders and planters are still looking good, and a big "thank you" goes to all of you who have been helping with the watering etc. We are happy to give a big welcome to our new lady helpers but where are the guys? We have a few gentlemen who help us every now and again for which we are very grateful, but we're wondering where the gardeners are amongst our male residents? There must be a few of you who could help us keep the village looking good!
If you fancy dabbling in a bit of gardening look out for the notices at the corner of Storking Lane which will tell you when we're meeting up.
We are extremely grateful to the companies and individual businesses who generously sponsor In Bloom . We are organising new planters and your support means we can purchase really substantial ones.
For more information about In Bloom then please contact either Margaret on 380961 or Pat on 380597.
