Launch of Village in Bloom 2015 at Mallard Community Orchard

Although there were showers and strong winds, the Village in Bloom Team managed to pull off a successful few hours to launch the Royal Horticultural Society’s Britain in Bloom campaign for 2015. The theme this year is Greener Streets – Better Lives. There was seed-sowing, lots of plants sales and gardening advice and even a little delightful music from the local Kimichi Music School’s Dynamica Strings before rain stopped play.

The team also launched a Children’s Art Competition. If anyone under 16 would like to enter click here to print off the application form.

Thanks to all those in the community who came along to play a part or to support the Village in Bloom. Over £150 was collected to go towards making Acocks Green Greener.
