Parish councillors Bev Chapman, Geoff Hall and Craig Browne joined volunteers from the Alderley Edge in Bloom Group and local residents on Saturday, 19th January to plant 1,000 bulbs on the green at Wood Gardens.

Councillor Craig Browne said "Over the coming weeks, we will be speaking to more residents about what their aspirations are for Wood Gardens, including possibly weeding and replanting the flower beds that were created in 2017 with different coloured heathers. I will also be purchasing boxus ball plants for the remaining planters in front of the shops and stocking them with winter primula over the next few weeks."

Have these 1,000 bulbs been donated?
If so, may we know by whom, so that we may say thankyou ?

Hi Duncan - The bulbs were purchased with the help of a small grant from Cheshire Peaks & Plains, as well as a donation from Councillor Geoff Hall.

Thank you Alderley in Bloom for working to brighten up Wood Gardens. We were away this weekend so did not see the work being done.
The bed in the centre is a bit of an eyesore at the moment, perhaps the shrubs could be removed and the area restored to a flower bed. The Christmas tree used to be in the middle of the bed, its current position on the edge of the roundabout does look a little odd.

All we need now is to stop dog owners allowing their dogs to foul the pavements and then walk away without clearing it up.It is a sign of them having a total disregard to the areas Not just Wood Gardens and the estate but Davey Lane London Rd etc.
