Adopt a Planter
The Parish Council has obtained permission from Central Bedfordshire Council to install about 20 planters in approved locations around the village over a period of time. The approved locations are mostly at junctions
where there are grass verges and
where the planter will not obstruct vision splays.
The locations of these planters will depend largely on the availability of volunteers who live nearby to tend them and water them when needed. It is possible for an individual resident, a family or business, or a group of residents to sponsor a planter. The planters could be dedicated to a loved one with a plaque or bear the name of the sponsor on the front. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor
please contact Elaine Russell on firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
The Parish Council will be holding their annual litter pick on Saturday 12th June. Look our for the information banner for more information. All participants will be supplied with high visibility jackets, gloves, waste bags and pickers.
