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 6th February 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.
We were lucky with the weather this autumn and got all our winter bedding planted out in two sunny days. We also helped the "Friends of Dasiy Hill Station" to plant up the half barrels on the station platform. The next few months are our quiet time, but keep an eye on the Facebook page for dates of any litter-picking sessions, or any work to clear overgrown areas. As usual we've scheduled a New Year litter-pick. Meet at St James Church at 2pm on Saturday 13th January 2018. This event is weather dependent - it won't go ahead in snowy or rainy weather.
On Sunday 17th September 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 fabulour range of produce on show from aubergines to redcurrants. The standard of some of the entries was outstanding, and we got excellent feedback from those who were there, including some ideas for if we decide to repeat the event in future years.
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.
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. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We want to get as many people involved as possible - email if you're interested email@example.com
