Today Otley in Bloom members Sue, Ian, Jacquie, David and Maria pruned, weeded and generally tidied up the flower bed beside the Chippendale statue on the road leading from Manor Square to St Joseph’s Primary School and the Otley Clinic. The bed was quite overgrown and full of weeds and the team removed two very large bags of prunings and litter. Jacquie later went back and put some new plants in at the far end.
Four of our members tonight weeded, swept and litter picked Bremner Street, outside Mill Trading and the Red Pepper Indian restaurant.
On Sunday two of our group had cleaned up the area at ‘Gas Works Corner’ where we have created a community orchard and veg / fruit plot for the locals. Other group members also weeded on Boroughgate , Manchester Square and Walkergate. Earlier in the day we sprayed weed killer on Bridge Street, Manor Square, Boroughgate, Wesley Street, Courthouse Street, Bay Horse Court, Bondgate, Crossgate, Mercury Row, Newmarket and at the Bus Station.
One of our members today spent a beautiful early morning round town watering, removing graffiti and weed spraying.
A few of our members were out tonight tidying up the Leeds and Pool Road gateways. They also gave the grasses in the Manor Square barrier planters a haircut. Moving on through town they cut down and sprayed the weeds in the car park at the bottom of Burras Lane, opposite the church, and watered the planters outside the parish church which were newly planted up and in need of water.
