Bank Holiday weekend

The rain has really helped us this week so this morning it was just a bit of topping up and deadheading.  The library is looking stunning with the begonias ‘blooming beautiful’ and the lavender, after a little turn, have started flowering again.

We’re coming towards the end of the summer planting season and even though they’re still looking lovely, we will be making plans over the next few weeks to start emptying the planters and preparing for the winter show!!

Have a fabulous bank holiday weekend – from all the WVIB Team.

Britain in Bloom

It’s been a busy few weeks getting ready for the Judges from the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) ‘Britain in Bloom’ (North West) competition, but what a fantastic day we had yesterday. A huge thanks for all the messages of support we received and for those who were extra vigilant and picked up and litter or weeds the day before the competition!   We were as ready as we could be.

We wont find out how we’ve done until early November, but we will keep you posted!

Wallasey Bright Ideas Project

We were delighted to be presented with this certificate on Tuesday night at Wallasey Town Hall for the successful completion of our ‘Wallasey Bright Ideas’ project. 

The funding was used to purchase the hanging baskets on the lampposts in Wallasey Village and watering equipment.  Thank you from Wallasey Village in Bloom team.
