Cannington In Bloom

Community Friends Flowers

Cannington Community Action Day

Our annual Cannington Community Action Day will take place on Saturday 18th June 2016, meeting at Cannington House at 0930.


Getting stuck in at the Community Orchard

We invite bloomers of all ages to join together, along with other community groups, to carry out various jobs around our community including:

  • Putting out summer barrier baskets
  • litter picking
  • painting fences and other street furniture
  • weeding and tidying borders
  • mulching paths
  • strimming verges
  • cutting hedges
  • planting

In various locations:

  • jubilee gardens
  • community orchard
  • Primary school
  • War memorial border
  • URC
  • BT triangle
  • school path

As is our guiding philosophy we have a giggle whilst we work and after a hard morning’s work we relax and chat to familiar and new faces….

All are welcome..

Jan & Steve Pettitt generously allow us to set up camp in their front garden at Cannington House.

From 1230 we sell Steve’s fantastic burgers, hold a raffle, sell scrumpy cakes  and drinks and have a plant sale. This gives us the opportunity to meet new bloomers and raise funds for the horticultural displays and other improvements around the village.
