On June 9th and again on June 11th Otley in Bloom volunteers were busy putting summer flowers in the large wooden planters around the town centre. These planters are regularly maintained and watered by OIB. One of our members was also up early with the birds going round the town doing the watering whatever planting he could.
Members of the team have been out and about over the last week or so working on the town’s gateways. The grass surrounding the Pool Road Gateway was cut the planting was tidied up and given a good watering. Likewise the Leeds Road Gateway was also tidied, planted up and watered.
Some more weeding today completing the cycle around town covering: Bondgate, Crossgate and Westgate. We have also cut down the daffodils in the Kirkgate tubs and Memorial Garden Planters. The planters outside the old One Stop shop were also planted up and watered.
Our hard working team have been busy planting up the large wooden planters in town supplied and managed by Instaplanta. In total they planted 20 trays of geraniums, 6 trays of petunia and 6 trays of marigolds. They have then been monitored and watered over the following days.
On Sunday May 26 Otley in Bloom volunteers joined community representative, Jonathan McGee, to brighten up a corner of an Otley town centre car park which had become scruffy and neglected. Earlier in the week an OIB litter picking team cleared a lot of rubbish which had accumulated in this car park.
