In early October 2023 members undertook a busy week of bulb planting. Groves have again generously provided 1,200 daffodils at wholesale cost which we have donated and distributed to local community groups to plant in the Millennium Green, Wellfield, Conyger Road/Victoria Way, the town planters and another circle of spring gold around ‘The Pod’ in Riverside Gardens to join those planted last year.
Thanks to David Dixon and the Outdoor team from BTC who organised site preparation and to The Bridge House Hotel for providing the team of eight planters with tea and coffee.
