More Blooms in Cults Bieldside & Milltimber
This Project continues into its sixth year, managed by Graham Payne, helped by a number of volunteers. Twenty four hanging baskets have been purchased from Cove Bay Nurseries and installed by volunteers at various lampposts along the North Deeside Road in Cults and Bieldside. These are being maintained ie watered, throughout the summer by volunteers. They were formerly watered by ACC but the cost of this became prohibitive given the limited income for the project. All the planters have been set with Summer bedding with some of the Spring bedding still flourishing in some.
As well as the hanging baskets, we try to maintain displays in 15 tubs and planters in Cults, 11 in Bieldside and 5 in Milltimber. We are limited in many cases by the accessability of planters. We cannot obstruct pavements which in many cases are relatively narrow. However, our main constraint is one of funding.
Whilst this year’s planting has funding, at the moment the coffers are not looking good for displays in 2021 and beyond.
How might you help? Donations are always welcome. After all, £1,500 is only 300 times a fiver. With over 4,000 household in the area it is hoped that this might be achievable. If you have liked what you have seen these past few years and would like the programme to continue please consider a small donation. Larger donations are also welcome!!
