Calling all green-fingered and handy volunteers! Congleton In Bloom supported by Plastic Free Congleton and Friends of Congleton Park host their first town tidy of 2020 on Saturday 7th March. Meeting in Congleton Park from 10am-12noon, there is a variety of activities to join in with.
Volunteers can do as little or as much as they want during this time, some of the activities include: cleaning bins, benches, lighting columns, railings, signs and fountains, removing debris from around the benches and bins, installing no dog fouling signs and posters in appropriate, and visible places, litter picking and weeding.
Those joining in are advised to wear clothing appropriate to anticipated weather conditions and sensible footwear. Everything else; Hi-Viz vests, litter pickers, sacks, gloves and all equipment will be provided. The Congleton In Bloom team are trying to get as many members of the public to help clean up as possible.
Congleton Town Tidy Champion Glen Williams said “The Congleton In Bloom team look forward to welcoming new and existing volunteers and working with both Friends of Congleton Park and the Plastic Free Congleton group. We have decided that Congleton Park is a great open space with opportunity for volunteers to work in the park, but it also gives a chance to work further afield outside of the park, weeding and litter picking the entrances in. Congleton In Bloom encourages community involvement and this session is a great way to help clean-up our town and meet new people at the same time!”
