Cannington In Bloom

Community Friends Flowers

A cunning plan…..

More bloomers hit the streets this weekend. Jan and Jayne were planting a few bulbs that were still knocking around at what has been nicknamed ‘BT triangle’ a grass verge at the bottom of Rodway.

We hope that you will enjoy this splash of colour ….

The bloomers are planning to plant this up with flowering perennials, providing year on year colour, such as asters, rudbeckias, day lilies and so on. This will provide colour and raise a smile, as well as helping pollinators and other wildlife on this busy stretch of road.

Herbaceous plants often need dividing as the clumps become bigger each year and their centres become woody and less productive. We know that there are lots of keen gardeners in Cannington, with many interesting plants in their gardens, who will be carrying out this job soon. Please consider donating a clump and help us to get this project underway.

Cannington Community Speedwatch

All through the year, the hardy volunteers of the community speedwatch help to keep the village roads safe.
Speed is an issue in the village due the nature of the roads, and volume of traffic at certain times of the day. These friendly folk give their time freely to help keep speeds down, and so improve road safety. We are all trained by Avon and Somerset police to carry out our duties, and anyone exceeding the limit is reported to the police and receives a letter reminding them to keep it down. Repeat offenders will get a visit from an officer, and those who are exceeding limits by a high margin will be dealt with by the police directly.

So what has this got to do with Cannington in Bloom. Well apart from having similar aims and sharing a member the speedwatch crew felt that they needed to brighten up one of their locations.

So on the 6th November decided to plant some bulbs to brighten up our sessions in the spring.

Is that car speeding? :)
