Display at Pudsey Flower Show

Today the group had a display board at the annual Pudsey Spring Flower Show that was held at the United Reform Church on School Street.
Lots of people stopped to look at our pictures and read about our projects; we gave out quite a few leaflets about Pudsey In Bloom and and we are hopeful of recruiting some more members.
Many people commented on how bright and colourful Pudsey was looking, and how they had noticed some of our group out and about planting.


We have had two meetings in March. We have finalised our route for the spring judging; this year we are including the Claremont Grove sheltered housing complex. The elderly people who live there work very hard to keep their gardens and grounds looking good, and this year they have had some extra help from children at Swinnow school who have planted lots of daffodils for them, the daffodils were donated by Groundwork Leeds.

We are also making plans to spend the £900 we were awarded last year from the YEP Cash In the Community, we now have permission to install the automatic watering kit on the Town Hall, this will be in place for our summer displays and greatly reduce our watering bills!

We are also very pleased that there is a lot of interest being shown by the businesses in Pudsey to have displays this summer, we have been approached by HSBC bank, Hanson World Choice, the Post Office and Lidget Hill Hardware store who all want to be a part of Pudsey In Blooms attempts to make the town a more attractive place.

1st March - A lovely Spring day

We have been out and about continuing the tidying up of the barrier troughs today, luckily the sun was shining!

Remember the tired old library beds that we planted up in December, well here is a picture of how they looked today, come summer they should be full of colour!
