More local business support!

We have been very busy receiving orders from many of the local businesses wanting hanging baskets for the summer. This support is fantastic, it can only help to strengthen the work we do to make Pudsey an attractive place. We have received lots of comments about how colourful the spring displays are. The post office also wants to show their support and this summer we hope to have 3 more barrier troughs on the steps up to the post office. We have been able to place an order for an additional 15 or so hanging baskets. As an incentive, the group have offered to pay for a bracket installing on any premise that wants to support us. So far to name a few, we have enlisted: Wetherby Whaler, HQ Dentals, Old Booths Tea Rooms, The Light Bite, Lidget Hill DIY Store and Hanson Travel. Many thanks to everyone for their support.!Community Involvement is a major contribution to gaining an award in the `Yorkshire In bloom` competition!

Spring Judging 3rd April 2009

We were fortunate to have a sunny day, although a bit chilly. Members of the group met with the judges and took them on a tour of Pudsey`s highlights. We were met by Councillor Jarosz who welcomed the judges:

Councillor Jarosz escorted us to our first port of call, Claremont Housing Complex, where we met with Dennis Pontefract who works tirelessly to keep the grounds tidy, recently the children of Swinnow Primary school volunteered to plant lots more daffodils in the grounds, these were in full bloom.

We went on to visit Pudsey lowtown School. the Crimbles Allotments, Robin Chase, Spinners Chase, Pudsey centre and the park, and ended up back at the library for a welcome cuppa!
