Trawden-in-Bloom volunteers keep village looking bright and beautiful

Green-fingered villagers have been making sure Trawden stays "in bloom" this summer.

With the North West-in-Bloom competition cancelled for 2020, Trawden-in-Bloom volunteers were still eager to bring a dash of colour to the parish.

Following a plan where volunteers worked individually or in socially distanced pairs, all the containers and gardens have been planted with attractive, summer bedding plants, as usual.

Volunteer Bev Robinson said: "In addition, we have removed our previously created, willow-woven sheep, which after many years had begun to look a little bedraggled and dishevelled.

"We have replaced them with some new sheep, made to represent Trawden’s history. Some were made from recycled bobbins, wood from barns and sheep’s horns, etc...whilst the others are representative of garden and wild flowers."

The sheep were made by Trawden-in-Bloom volunteers, Michael Holt, Liz Berridge and Bev.
