In Bloom volunteers spruce up medical centre planters

Alderley Edge in Bloom volunteers have rejuvenated two planters placed outside the Medical Centre.

A team of five volunteers completed the makeover on Sunday morning, clearing out the weeds and replacing then with colourful flowers, herbs and some medicinal plants donated by In Bloom volunteers and local allotment holders.

Group Chair Leslie Cox said "We wanted to show our support for the Medical Centre by adding some colour and interest to the planters. Quite a number of our group have been regular patients in recent times and benefitted from the super care of the practice team. It's our way of saying 'Thank You' .We hope visitors to the Centre and the Festival Hall enjoy the displays."

The planting lincludes Delphiniums, Veronica, Dwarf Alliums and Roman Chamomile along with Black Peppermint, Hyssop, Lavender, Rosemary, Lemon Thyme, Lemon Curd Thyme, Blackcurrant Sage, Pineapple Mint, Berries and Cream Mint, Ginger Mint, Moroccan Mint, Chocolate mint and Olive herb.

Visitors to the Medical Centre are welcome to take a small snip of the herbs and enjoy the fragrance.

Alderley Edge in Bloom are also hosting three local companies over the coming months . They are volunteering as part of their Community support and Corporate Responsibility programmes.

If you would like to volunteer for Alderley Edge in Bloom by helping with planting, watering, growing vegetables at the Chorley Hall Lane Allotment or litter picking in and around the village, contact Leslie Cox, [email protected].

I saw those planters today: brilliant.
Of course these are not the only ones in the village so I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to the team.
