Each year the Town Team organises as many beautiful hanging baskets along the High street as they can.
For the summer of 2021 Town Team are planning another Summer of colourful hanging baskets for the High Street. We have 60 on order to brighten up the town for the community and they will be delivered during June. This year, like last, hasn't been easy for businesses or individuals but we felt it remained important to continue with our usual projects to brighten up our town centre.
As always the baskets are available to sponsor by anyone who would like to. It's easy to do, just complete the form found in the link below and post or transfer the payment as per the instructions.

Thank you in advance for helping us make this annual project such a success and we hope you all enjoy the baskets when they arrive.
Adopt a Plot
A few years ago the Town Team started to notice that what was once, lovely floral beds and pocket parks throughout the town, had slowly become, disused, unwanted and un-planted eyesores. Accepting the fact that current council budgets have resulted in cuts to many services, some critical community services we were faced with there being no room for little flower beds to be cared for by council funds, we introduced the "Adopt a Plot Scheme". Simply various groups, organisations or individuals could "Adopt" some of these little unloved bits and care for them and plant them up again.
We are delighted to say that all our identified "plots" are currently adopted and once again our town looks loved and cared for. If you are interested in helping with the adopt a plot scheme e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Big Spring Clean
Each year we tackle our annual Big Spring Clean. Our way of freshening up the high street for the year ahead. We litter pick, weed and scrub our way along the high street, the Parade and the underpass, and depending on volunteer support spread out from there.
Whether you have 30 mins or 3hrs come along and join us April each year making our town a cleaner place to be.
Although our team is small we are always looking for new ideas. Ways to keep our town a fun vibrant place to live and visit.
We always need new volunteers to help with various projects
Come along to a meeting and see what we are all about! We announce the dates of our volunteer meetings on our Facebook page, or sign up for our e-mail distribution list for e-mail updates.
