In November, Colne Town Council was approached by Colne in Bloom organisers who were concerned that they would not be able to continue doing the floral displays throughout the town as they did not have the funds to do so and asked if there was anything the town council could do to preserve the group and the service provided.

Colne Town Council agreed to go into partnership with Colne in Bloom, to manage the financial side of the service as well as other key elements and to bring this in house and adopt it as a council service with the wonderful volunteers being able to continue with the work that they all love.

Mary Wooltorton, treasurer and secretary of Colne in Bloom, said, “The partnership with Colne Town Council has given Colne in Bloom the opportunity to develop further and keep creating displays around Colne.

"Without the partnership we were not too sure how we would survive as we simply did not have the funds to carry on. It has ensured our volunteers can continue keeping the floral displays around the town as they have done for many years.”

The council’s collaboration with the award winning charity, provides the opportunity for Colne In Bloom to continue to colour the town with their amazing displays which run throughout the town.
