Aiming for another blooming success
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.”
