Wokingham in Bloom, a potpourri

A great deal has happened in March around Bloom, not least the appearance of the crocuses on The Terrace which were planted last year thanks to the support of The Wokingham Society.

  • a raised brick bed has been cleared on Rose Street and planted with roses


    Bluebells in Holt Copse

  • a letter and order form has been taken around all of the businesses in the town centre inviting them to take a fully serviced and maintained 20 inch hanging flower basket for summer.  The baskets will have the same flowers as the Town Council’s baskets
  • plans to restore the pond at Woosehill Meadows are well advanced.  An application has been sent to the Environment Agency for permission to carry out the work
  • Jenny Gilbert and Ann Crail have cleared  the winter weeds from the patch by the ramp to the Library, and tidied it up splendidly!

Do look out for:

  • the eagerly anticipated return of the beehive to Woosehill roundabout…. any day now
  • the small scrub area by the Lord Raglan on Denmark Street will soon look a great deal lovelier
  • Transition Wokingham have put up a new fence at the Cockpit Path community garden and worked wonders in the garden
  • a piece of land on Alderman Willey Close, opposite Dickens Court, has been earmarked for another Incredible Edible project  -more power to their trowels!
