Alderley Edge in Bloom volunteers were joined by an enthusiastic bunch of children from The Ryleys School to plant daffodil bulbs on Tuesday, 9th November
Pupils from Years 5 and 6 helped to plant over a thousand bulbs were planted on the corner of Chorley Hall Lane and across the road on the verge off Ryleys Lane, next to the newly refurbished footpath.
Bloom Chairman Leslie Cox said "What a super group of polite, energetic and enthused children who helped us grow pride in our village. The children learned about bulb planting and are excited to see the fruits of their Labour this coming spring."
Mrs Langford, Headteacher at The Ryleys said "We are delighted to be involved in this wonderful community project again. The planting of bulbs really enhances the local area and provides enjoyment for the whole community as well as passers-by. The children are very excited to see the results of their planting in the spring!"
Alderley Edge in Bloom volunteers have been active in recent weeks with winter display planting in the village as well as more bulb planting at various village locations and putting their Chorley Hall Lane Allotment site to bed for the winter.
Leslie added "The group also do regular litter picks meeting up at 10:00 am on Mondays at the station car park, pick for a while and meet up for a coffee afterwards in the village. We are both environmentally friendly and highly sociable!."
The group rely on donations and fundraising to achieve their goals and always need more volunteers to help at the allotment plot at Chorley Hall Lane, maintaining the village planting displays, the Waitrose Woodland garden, Ivygate at the top of Brook Lane and supporting their partners the Alderley Edge Station Volunteer group.
