Spring blooms planted by volunteers
PASSERS-BY and visitors to Loughborough’s Forest Road Green Belt next spring, will experience an even greater panorama of colour, thanks to the planting of over 2,000 more crocus bulbs, celebrating the Annual World Polio Day Crocus Planting initiative.
Members of Loughborough Beacon Rotary Club, which has supported the initiative for many years, joined with regular Green Belt Volunteers to assist Charnwood Council’s Green Spaces contractor, id verde, in planting the bulbs, despite an initially wet Saturday morning.
Green Belt Co-ordinator, Pat Cook, expressed her gratitude to all concerned, in carrying on the legacy started by her late husband, local gardening legend, Harry Cook.
Further crocus planting is planned to be undertaken by id verde, outside Loughborough’s Beehive Lane car park, at the Marios Tinenti Centre on Russell Street, at the All Together Place on Warwick way and at Milton Court.
