Volunteers from Crewkerne In Bloom have begun the cultivation of the grass bank next to the WW11 Pillbox at the eastern end of town. The tremendous task to provide a colourful welcome to those travelling into Crewkerne along the A30 from the Yeovil direction, is just one of many gardening projects being undertaken by the hard working groups of volunteers. Other volunteers have been meeting up every couple of weeks, to help tidy up flower beds in the town centre.
Work mornings for Crewkerne In Bloom take place on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, with volunteers meeting at 10 am and enjoying a warming cuppa and chat at a local cafe afterwards. Chairman of Crewkerne In Bloom, Desi Fradgley said: “To make Crewkerne look even more cheerful than last year and keep up the gold standard achieved in South West in Bloom, we would appreciate more voluntary help. There are also a lot of backroom jobs which also need doing to help us keep the town looking welcoming for the shoppers, who support our local businesses and tourists who visit Crewkerne.”
Anyone who enjoys fresh air, companionship and a friendly cuppa, loves gardening and is ideally equipped with gloves, secateurs, pruning tools and forks, although having your own gardening tools is not essential and would like to become involved with the successful community project, or can help in other ways with tasks that don’t involve gardening or would like to become a Friend of Crewkerne in Bloom by annual subscription, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01460 72665 or 01460 63856.
