Look out for our article in the Squeaker.

One of our members has written an article for the Squeaker...just in case you miss it, here it is:


We had a beautiful day for the judges’ visit, the town was busy and the plants were looking bright and colourful. We called at the Tripe Baths at Lowtown Gardens, then onto Lowtown School where the children were so enthusiastic it was hard to leave. Next the Crimbles Allotments, immaculate as always, round to Sparrow Park via the newly planted Rotary bed in the car park on Robin Lane, back through Pudsey Park finishing with a walk through the Bus Station and town centre.

We are hopeful that our efforts around the town were well received, but we will not know the results until September, so fingers crossed!

May we say “thank you”:-

To Lowtown School and Crimbles Allotments for your help with the visit.

To the businesses around the town who help by drawing water for us, especially in the heat of late. Without you the plants will “fry” and keeping up with watering is a hard part of our work, so you are very much appreciated.

To the businesses who sponsor various planters giving us much needed funds.

And, of course, to the Wellbeing fund for the funding to be able to provide the hanging baskets on the Town Hall and the Leisure Centre, (these have suffered from the heat but are starting to “pick up” now) along with other areas of planting. Wellbeing funding is awarded by local ward members through the west (outer) area committee.

Anyone who displayed a poster or did a tidy up.

Finally to the lady who came up to us in the children’s playground and thanked us for our work, that was appreciated and couldn’t have come at a better time, the judges were impressed!!!!
