Spring plants for Nailsea

ENTHUSIASTIC volunteers have been busy gearing up Nailsea for some much-needed spring colour to bring residents out of their winter doldrums.

The Nailsea in Bloom group has planted containers and flower beds around the town with bulbs and plants.

The back-breaking work included three extra containers and one bed which North Somerset Council decided, as part of its economy measures, to stop planting this year.

Although the team did not to enter the South West in Bloom competition last year it still aims ‘to keep the plants around Nailsea looking bright and attractive for everyone to enjoy’, according to chairman Martyn Davis.

He added: “We are very grateful for the continued support of the Town Council and all our other sponsors – without this support we could not continue to keep the town looking the way it should.”

The group’s project this year was to re-plant shrub beds on the high street and is currently working on a new plan of action for 2012.

Help is always needed and anyone who would like to join them can contact Martyn on 01275 855563.
