St Anne’s in Bloom volunteers have been busy trying to get our plants ready for summer to bring some colour to town. Fortunately we have been able to grow on lots of our own plants either from seed or cuttings at our allotment. Deliveries of bedding plants has been delayed by logistics problems so we have at least had some plants ready whilst waiting for more to arrive.
Regular gardening groups of volunteers have been working in the Peace and Happiness Garden and along the promenade and a new group has been formed for the summer to take care of our tubs in the town centre. All of our volunteers are very committed and really enjoy being part of St Anne’s in Bloom.
We held our annual plant sale in Ashton Gardens as part of the Jubilee Carnival celebrations. The carnival was a great success and the organisers did a fantastic job organising the four day event in co-operation with St Anne’s Town Council and Fylde Borough Council. The Saturday was extremely busy but as we were not in our “usual” spot behind the café a few people couldn’t find us. If you missed us at the carnival please keep an eye on our Facebook page as we are considering having a “pop up” plant sale later in the summer.
