Remembrance Sunday

We’ve been working with the assistance of knitting groups at the Library and Community Soul Café in Wallasey Village. We’ve been busy knitting poppies to provide a display at the front of the library for Remembrance Sunday. The purple poppies represent the animals that were killed, and in particular the horses that died, in the First World War. We have also added a simple … Read More Remembrance Sunday

Recycle | Re-use | Re-plant

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!

We did it! Gold Winners

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 … Read More We did it!

Mike Brassey

You may have noticed a bench at Mike’s Circle on Bayswater Road over the past few months and wondered why it was there.  The Circle is named after Mike Brassey and the bench is dedicated to him.  Mike is the father of Suzanne (who is one of the founding members of Wallasey Village in Bloom) and he gave us lots of advice and help in … Read More Mike Brassey
