VOL­UN­TEERS have been out in force hop­ing to build on Mac­cles­field’s suc­cess at the Bri­tain in Bloom Awards.

Fol­low­ing a sil­ver medal in the large town cat­e­gory, bulbs have been planted at the Bird Sanc­tu­ary, on Ken­dal Road, in prepa­ra­tion for 2019.

The team in­cluded young­sters from St John the Evan­ge­list Pri­mary, Coun­cil­lor Alift Hare­wood and Mayor of Mac­cles­field Coun­cil­lor Adam Schofield.

Hun­dreds of daf­fodil and tulip bulbs were planted and grounds main­te­nance staff were on hand to give help and ad­vice.

Pete Turner, from MacPete Turner, from Mac­cles­field Town Coun­cil, said: “It was a great com­mu­nity event.

“Lots of res­i­dents and chil­dren en­joy­ing some out­door ac­tiv­ity and also plant­ing some colour for next spring.

“Ev­ery­one worked so well to­gether and I would like to thank the res­i­dents, chil­dren and the grounds staff for their help and hard work with the flow­ers.

“I hope we will all be able to en­joy them for many years to come.”

Any­one wish­ing to join the team of vol­un­teers can con­tact the town coun­cil on 01625 374142.
