Awards & Grants
***2021 silver award***
Dot didn’t enter us this year as we hadn’t done anything for obvious reasons. Anyway, Mel Kirby from the Council who was presenting the awards said that he took the other judges to Blackley Forest and told them about the work we do. They were very impressed by the work we had done in the past. We only went and won silver! What a lovely surprise. So thanks to you all for your hard work in the Forest over the years.
Now let's continue the good work and win again next year!
A previous year's award: Rod and Dot Keller (Chairman), Denise Bowen (Vice Chair / Secretary), Mike Hall and Bernard Healey (Treasurer)
Successful grant application
We have been successful in our bid for a grant from the NE England Horticultural Society.
This is to purchase shrubs for the Kendall Road entrance. These have been planted now, and we are now planning to put bark chippings down to keep the weeds at bay!
