The Committee meets roughly once a month, with a break during the winter, and is a mixture of Councillors and volunteers. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to attend, and help us plan future priorities and activities. Our next official meeting will be on Tuesday 22 May 2018 at 7.30pm at Daisy Hill Cricket Club.
We're always keen to recruit more volunteers who can help out occasionally, with planting, weeding, litter picking or by adopting a tub or planter and water it in dry periods over the summer. If you would like to help, please email email@example.com.
Thanks to those who helped with the litter pick on 10th March. Twelve bags of litter were collected.
Our busiest time of year is fast approaching. Starting in late May we will be planting summer bedding in all our beds and containers. If you would like to get involved in any planting, weeding, or other working sessions, get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) or just come along - details will be kept updated on our Facebook page.
On Sunday 17th September 2017 we held our first ever Daisy Hill Flower, Fruit and Veg Show. It was a chance for gardeners and allotmenteers to show off their successes. It was a great afternoon with a fabulous range of produce on show from aubergines to redcurrants. The standard of some of the entries was outstanding, lots of gold and silver certificates were awarded, and we were delighted that the Mayor of Westhoughton joined us to present the special "Best in Show" prizes.
There's a list of winners on the "Results" page of the website, and some pictures in the Photo Gallery.
We have now agreed that we will go ahead with a Show this year as well, and the Cricket Club have kindly agreed to host the event again. It'll be on Sunday 2nd September. So now is a good time to plan what you'd like to grow and enter this year!
Daisy Hill in Bloom organises a litter pick around the village three or four times a year. It's amazing how much we can collect in just an hour or so. If you'd like to help with these
efforts to keep our streets looking good, keep an eye on this page for dates and details.
Why not adopt the pavement in front of your house and keep it litter-free this year? Or contact us if there's a part of Daisy Hill that could to with a clean-up. (email@example.com)
We want to get as many people involved as possible - email if you're interested firstname.lastname@example.org
