The main impact is during the summer months with the hanging baskets & stanchions but our aim is to extend the season by continuing to plant shrubs and bulbs in the pocket gardens, giving more winter colour. We also have boats sited around the town, most with bedding plants but the one near the harbour is planted with perennials which thrive in this location.







Who we are & What do we do?


We are a group of local residents who work to improve the town, hopefully making it a greener, cleaner and more beautiful place to live, work and visit, by organising the planting and distribution of troughs and displays throughout the town centre and by gradually taking over/creating pocket garden areas, planting sustainably where possible. We work with other groups and liaise with many businesses and local organisations


All sections of the  community who are able to support our  aims, either through financial or practical help, are welcomed. We try to ensure  that all residents are able to play a full part in assisting our aims and  encourage the widest possible participation in all activities regardless of  disability, gender or race.
