You may have noticed that three large planters have appeared in the village – one on the corner of Easthorpe Street / Loughborough Road, one on Wilford Road and one on The Green. These lovely planters were purchased by the Environment & Community Committee and the Parish Council groundstaff planted them up in May – initially with long term planting but annuals and bulbs will be added according to the season. It is hoped that if successful, more planters will be added next year in other locations and the scheme will be rolled out further in future years.
However, the success (or not) of this scheme does depend on some assistance from residents keeping an eye on the planters, removing any debris (cans, crisp packets, etc), giving the plants some water during a dry period and reporting any problems to the Parish Council so that it can be dealt with.
Please let the Parish Council Office know if you see anything that needs attention.
