Caistor in Bloom EMN-210621-054458001

Volunteers dig in to make sure Caistor is blooming once again

Summer displays are again blooming throughout Caistor thanks to a band of happy volunteers who turned out in the sunshine last week to get the many planters and tubs around the town potted up.

John and David from Carr Lane Nurseries once again delivered the array of bountiful blooms and were on hand throughout the day to offer some planting advice on the layouts for the individual tubs and troughs.

In the midst of the lockdown last year, the ‘bloomers’ concentrated their efforts on the town centre, but this year, they have again spread out across the town.

There is also a new addition – an old seed drill, which now adorns the entrance to the town from the A46 at Nettleton Road.

As always, leading the team of volunteers was Michael Galligan, who is proud of what has been achieved.

He said: “The community spirit of Caistor has come to the fore and we thank everyone who came along to help.”

Michael now has the unenviable task of keeping all the tubs, troughs and hanging baskets well watered.
