Council and residents revitalise Bulling Lane planter

Council and residents revitalise Bulling Lane planter

In May this year, Cllr Jordan James joined forces with the Open Gardens Group and local residents to bring new life to the planter located on the circle of land at the corner of Bulling Lane.

The planter was unlevel, due to it being positioned over an old dead tree trunk and had to be first levelled, and then refilled with new compost.

After that carefully selected, predominantly perennial plants were put in, meaning the display will continue year-on-year with minimal replenishment required. The water reservoir was topped up and local residents have volunteered to keep it filled during the summer months.

The Parish Council funded the revitalisation of the planter, the Open Garden Group donated some of the plants, and local residents volunteered to maintain it. Almost 20 passers-by commented on the improvement, which just goes to show what a little bit of team working can achieve.

What a great result in these difficult times – a big 'thank you' to everyone involved!
