The Congleton In Bloom team calls for all green-fingered and handy volunteers, to help in the final push before the 2019 North West In Bloom judging. The night before judging, on Wednesday 24th July, there will be a town tidy from 6pm onwards, meeting at the Community Garden, Lawton Street.
Volunteers can do as little or as much as they want, some of the activities include: litter picking, weeding, cleaning benches, bins, railings and signs, removing debris from around the benches and bins and much more.
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 out at this final town tidy before judging, as possible.
Congleton In Bloom Chairman David Brown said “The In Bloom team look forward to welcoming new and existing volunteers to the town tidy on Wednesday night. We decided that the Community Garden was the best place to start, with it being in the centre of town, it gives the volunteers the opportunity to branch off and work on other areas of the town. Congleton In Bloom relies on community participation and the amount of volunteers that we have been getting has been fantastic and so, it would be great to have the highest number yet at our clean-up, for the final push before judging on Thursday 25th July. Congleton In Bloom promotes making Congleton a cleaner and greener place to live, work and visit!”
