Spring bulbs enhance local park

Around 2,000 daffodil bulbs are being planted in Clyde Crescent Park by volunteers on Wednesday 29th October.

Volunteers from the Whaddon, Lynworth and Priors Neighbourhood Project are rolling up their sleeves to brighten up their park, thanks to a generous donation from Cheltenham in Bloom (CiB). This donation has been match-funded by Cheltenham Borough Council.

The event is part of this year's Community Service Volunteers (CSV) Make a difference day, and everyone is welcome to come along and help out.

Chris Ryder, chair of Cheltenham in Bloom, says: “Children and adults are invited to join us at 11am in the children's play area to plant the bulbs and give a splash of colour to this park.

“Three years ago Clyde Crescent Park had new lighting and a footpath, and more recently local children planted trees and shrubs. Now this daffodil planting will bring flowers and colour to this well used park, making it more attractive for our local residents and their families. Remember to bring your wellies and a spade!”

Rob Bell, the council's assistant director for operations, continues: “It's great that the council, the voluntary sector and the local community are working together to provide and plant these bulbs. When they bloom it will make a real difference to the appearance of this popular park.”

If you would like to get involved with the event, contact Anna Reeves at the Whaddon, Lynworth and Priors Neighbourhood Project on 01242 516960.

This project cost approximately £200.
