Bulb Planting, Holmes Chapel Road

Bulb Planting 28th October 2011

Middlewich clean team have been out and about again, this time bulb planting on the area outside the Salt Cellar alongside the roundabout on the Holmes Chapel Road. Twenty three people took part - Brownies and their leaders, Clean Team and Community Pride members, a Girl Guide, Street Pastors and residents old and young - making this a true community event. We all worked hard for about an hour digging trenches for an assortment of daffodils, tulips and crocuses, had our photo taken with the Salt Cellar's manager, then went inside for some very welcome refreshments.

The annual planting is organised by Middlewich Clean Team with bulbs funded by the Middlewich Community Pride Group. Previous areas to be tackled in this way include the lay-by on Croxton Lane and the land opposite the Boars Head on Kinderton Street.

MIDDLEWICH is set to bloom this winter thanks to the green-fingered efforts of the town’s Clean Team. The organisation recently joined forces with the community payback scheme to plant pansies along the borders of the path in St Michael’s Church grounds.

And on Sunday, October 23, busy Lizzies in the group will be armed with hundreds of bulbs to bed along Holmes Chapel Road. The planting session is open to everyone and will start at 2pm at the Salt Cellar pub. 

The next litter pick will take place at Tesco car park on Monday, October 10, from 1pm.

Ten people came along to the litter pick on the 10th October in mizzly weather, but Janet was delighted to hand the new hoops to Middlewich Clean Team members which had been donated to the team by Cheshire East Council. The hoops will be a great help in windy weather.
