Brigg in Bloom
Brigg Town Council is in the process of establishing a community planting scheme, ‘Brigg In Bloom’. The aim is to extend the current planting scheme to key areas around the town. Initially this work will include the installation of planters on the railings at the Barnard Avenue roundabout, the Riverside pathway near Ladbrokes, County Bridge and the bus stop on Bridge Street near Sherwood’s Cycle shop.
In the long term, it is hoped that the Brigg in Bloom group will become an independent voluntary body, which will work closely with the Town Council to deliver a planting scheme to enhance the visual amenity in the town.
To kick start this process, the Town Council has found over £9000.00 in unused budgets for the purchase of hardware for the scheme. It has also successfully applied for a North Lincolnshire Council Community Grant of £5000.00 to fund the installation of the baskets, planting and watering in the summer of 2017.
If you would like to hear more about this exciting new venture or would be willing to become a volunteer, please come along to the Annual Town Meeting. We are looking for anybody who has a few hours each week to help with a variety of tasks, from deadheading and weeding, approaching local businesses for sponsorship to planning displays for future years. Alternatively, if gardening isn’t your thing, we are also looking for artistic people to come up with designs for displays. So whatever your talents, please come along and join this exciting venture for the Brigg.
There will be a meeting of volunteers on Monday, 8th May, 2017, to plan how the town’s beds will be maintained and planted in the coming weeks.
The meeting will take place in the Angel Suite Ballroom, at 7.00 pm.
ALL ARE WELCOME - EVEN IF YOU HAVE NOT YET EXPRESSED AN INTEREST
