Ripponden in Bloom Newsletter May 2012

Fund raising

May Day saw us join in with the procession from the Silk Mill along Oldham Road – thank you to all those who gave to our ‘Bucket’ we raised over £34.
On the field we had our now famous Palm Reading and prize every time Tombola where we raised another £300 for group funds. We even sold out before the end of the day. See the pictures opposite with the winner of our superb hamper.

This month

We started our summer bedding planting on the hottest day so far this year the planters at Central Hall look wonderful. We have been helped by students from Calderdale College studying horticulture. They wanted to work in the community and they have helped with our summer planting.

We are delighted to have won more grant funding £900 from Community Foundation for Calderdale. This money is going to be used to carve a commemorative stone to be placed in the newly named Jubilee Gardens on Oldham Road.

Working Parties

Soyland in Bloom held their first working party and even got Jaggers to help with their JCB. Look out for the new planters and the rebuilt walls. Well done Soyland and keep up the good work.

Thank you to all
Everyone’s help is vital
