|Our 2020 certificates. |
Due to the Covid Pandemic, our usual entry into the Northwest in Bloom scheme which is run by the Royal Horticultural Society, has been impossible. However, many of our volunteers have continued to work in the Rose Garden, keeping it a beautiful sanctuary, where many people have gone to exercise and escape during this difficult time.
Our volunteers have planted 700 bulbs at the top of the garden , leading into the Quarry. The Friends group has received generous donations from visitors, one of which funded all those bulbs, which should be a wonderful sight next Spring to lift our spirits.
In light of the currant situation, and in recognition of the contribution our Friends have made to the community, we have been awarded three certificates from the RHS Britain in Bloom.
The three certificates are as follows:-
For inspiring others
For sharing your kow how
With new hope in sight as new vaccines are close to being brought out, we all look forward to being able to return to normality in 2021.
