DAISY HILL IN BLOOM

(Site last updated 03/06/2021)

 

Welcome to the Daisy Hill in Bloom website. Since 2008 Daisy Hill in Bloom has been working to improve our environment and encourage people to get involved. Each year we've had a small grant from the Town Council to purchase plants and other supplies.  All the hard work is done by volunteers.

LATEST NEWS:

 

Daisy Hill in Bloom had to suspend most activities for 2020, but no we're back in action. Over the past year we took the opportunity to clear out old and weed-infested compost from the railings planters arund the village, and plant new bulbs there - daffs and miniature iris. We also continued with some litter-picking and tidying activities either individually or with very small socially distanced groups.

 

We've still not resumed normal committee meetings and have been meeting via Zoom.

 

In May 2021 we were able once again to fill all our containers and raised beds with summer-flowering plants to bring colour to our area. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for upcoming activities. Once all Covid restrictions are finally lifted we're hoping to have a big community litter-pick.

 

Because our Facebook page is proving so successful, and so simple to update, we are going to be using this website less in future.  If you visit the site regularly, we hope you will still be able to keep up with us on Facebook instead. (However, the website will continue to be updated occasionally.)
