Ripponden in Bloom Newsletter August 2012

This month
The on going process of weeding and maintaining the areas in the village continues. The summer rain has kept the plating fresh but the weeds are rampant.

Yorkshire In Bloom
We will learn next month what award the village had been given for all its hard work. Watch this space.

Calendar 2013
We will be launching our fabulous 2013 calendar at Rushbearing on the 2nd September. The price is being held at 2010 prices £5.50 each or two for £10. They will be available from many outlets in the village and committee members- please support the group and buy a calendar – this is our main fundraiser for this year.

We will be having our usual stall near the gate. This year we will be selling the large planters donated to us by the Police for £10 great value – come and bag a bargain.


We will be having our usual prize every time tombola at Rushbearing on the 2nd September – we have had a number of lovely items donated but we still need more – we spend over £5000 each year on our work and we need to raise as much as we can. If you have any unwanted gifts or good quality bric-a-brac you would like to donate to us we would be very grateful to receive it.

Thank you to all
