What an amazing day we had at the Launch of Wallasey Village in Bloom Floral Trail.
Our guest of honour was the one and only (local) Shirley Ballas (and her mum) who kindly gave her valuable time to talk, sign autographs and pose for photos, we thank you so much! What a lovely down to earth person who hasn’t forgotten her Wallasey roots.
And a big thank you to everyone that turned up today and special thanks to the Friends of Wallasey Village Library for the refreshments provided.
The Floral Trail is our latest exciting new project that brings together our work in the community for everyone to share.
The Floral Trail will be launched on Sunday, 5th May at 11.30am at Wallasey Village Library, St Georges Road, CH45 3NE. We’re honoured that Shirley Ballas, head judge on BBC1 ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ has agreed to launch our project.
There are four different trails around the village to showcase what is unique about the area and highlights our thriving community. It includes all floral displays we’ve produced and historical places of interest. Each trail is tailored to suit all age groups to promote health and wellbeing.It’s taken a long time to get from the theory of a Floral Trail to the reality, but finally it’s all come together. We have produced maps outlining the four routes (available on the day).
We’ve had wonderful support from local people and the business community who tell us what an impact our work has had on their lives.
Please come along on the day – we look forward to seeing you there!
This is what we do whenever we are able to. Last year we re-planted a small bay tree at the library. It had been in a pot and we were a bit concerned that it wouldn’t make it at first, but with a little TLC – well, just look at it now!
We love recycling, re-using and re-planting – it makes us happy Bloomers!
In special recognition of the centenary to the fallen in WW1, Wallasey Village in Bloom wanted to pay their respects. Some of the WVIB team, with the help of family and friends hand knitted over 200 of these beautiful poppies which are displayed on the outside wall of Wallasey Village Library, the original idea was to create just a hundred but enthusiasm took over and we also added laurel leaves to the display – lest we forget.
We’re so incredibly proud of our achievement yesterday at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Britain in Bloom (North West) Awards ceremony in Southport, where we were presented with ‘Gold‘ for all our efforts in 2018.
We have worked hard all year round but we could not have done it without our amazing volunteers and the continued support of local businesses and local Wallasey people. Thank you.
