Update on the leisure Centre Bed:

Alliums are adding some lovely colour and structure to this area, everything is looking good:

And, although we have now emptied the majority of the troughs in readiness for summer planting, the newer troughs around the bus station are still providing a splash of colour:

Update on `Tour de France` project:

We have started to put some structure into the bed now, a large post has been positioned as this will provide an anchor for the cycle and will also have a sign attached saying `to the dales`. A fence is edging the back of the display and areas have been cleared in readiness for the yellow plants to go in.

Great day at the Carnival!

What a lovely sunny day for the carnival, and a great success for the group too. There was lots of interest in our plant stall and we managed to raise just over £170. We will also get our share of the money collected in the parade once it has been counted.
It`s great that we now also have our display boards as they allow us to share our news about our projects with everyone. We also managed to recruit a new member!

Lynda also made some fantastic flower displays for the stage and a beautiful bouquet and posies for the carnival queen and attendants, which sadly were not given out until after the parade, so any photos you see of the parade will show the girls with rather tired artificial posies...what a shame !

Here are a few pictures from the day:
