Eccleshall in Bloom

Did you ever wonder how the hanging baskets and floral displays were installed each year and the Christmas Trees erected?

The Eccleshall In Bloom team get together each year with friends and raise funds and get the job done.

If you might be interested in contributing financially to the project or lending a hand get in touch with Phil Baskerville on 01785 850764 or email him at philandwendybaskerville@btinternet.com

COVID-19 AND ITS EFFECTS ON THE BLOOM WORK

Traditionally Eccleshall in Bloom team have installed over 60 hanging baskets and mangers in the town centre however like so many things the restrictions of the Pandemic have forced them to rethink.

With the help and effort of Richard Egan the membership secretary of the Ecclian Society and his team of volunteers a limited number of hanging baskets etc were installed. In addition he was able to install the union flags and the NHS flags which the children at Lonsdale Academy had produced.

CHRISTMAS TREES
COMPLETE WITH LIGHTS

You cant keep those Ecclian folk down, not even a virus can stop them from erecting almost 60 Christmas trees complete with lights for the festive season. The trees will brighten our town centre thanks to their hard work.
