Hillsborough Gearing up for a Blooming Spring

Volunteers braved the weather last weekend to plant spring flowers as they get ready for a season of in bloom activities.

Hillsborough Forum had purchased four large planters to brighten up Hillsborough Corner which were given a face-lift whilst on Holme Lane the team busied themselves at the Holme Lane Community Garden.

Wendy Wells (Environmental Projects Officer- Hillsborough Forum said, “It is really great to see so many local people giving up their spare time to get stuck in and enjoying working on our local green spaces, the community garden is now in it’s third year and is going from strength to strength and is cherished by local people as an oasis in the middle of a concrete jungle.”

Hillsborough has again entered the Yorkshire in Bloom competition as an urban community, building on the success of a silver rose award in 2009. For more information about Hillsborough in Bloom visit the website at www.hillsboroughinbloom.btik.com
