HORNSEA IN BLOOM COMMITTEE - THE STORY SO FAR

Since setting up in July 2001 the Hornsea In Bloom Committee have been busy in the town.

With permission from St. Nicholas Church, Newbegin, money was raised for plants and bulbs. Spring Garden Centre also donated some plants and Hornsea In bloom planted the churchyard wall and path edges. The wall and path edges are still maintained by volunteers.

On make a difference day back in October 2001 a joint event was organised with the Countryside Society and with the help of other organisations in the town 8 sacks of different types of daffodil bulbs chosen to flower at different times and purchased by the Town Council were planted.

Over the years bulbs have been planted on the four entrance roads into Hornsea, under the welcome signs, along the paths on the rail trail and along the hedge on Rolston Road this is an ongoing project.

Morrow Avenue have seen a variety of flowers and shrubs planted chosen to withstand the gale force winds and sea spray along with a pebble mosaic for the centre section of the garden built and designed in partnership with the Hornsea Senior School.

Hornsea In Bloom organise a stall at events held throughout the town to raise money for plants and bulbs and to talk to people about what they are doing within the town and how volunteers can help them to achieve more.

A competition is held each year organised by the Committee for the most colourful:- 1/ Front Garden 2/ Planter or Basket 3/ Public Building 4/ Residential Home with a certificate and money prize going to each category.

Hornsea In Bloom are always looking for volunteers to help around the town, donations towards the cost of plants, bulbs, planters etc. equipment in good working order and condition, and sponsorship from any retail outlet.
