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.
