Volunteers work towards a Blooming Denbigh.

Group introduction

Denbigh in Bloom is a community group, run entirely by volunteers all having a keen interest in improving the appeal of our town.
Since forming in January 2016, we have added beautiful floral displays throughout the High Street and transformed eight raised beds on two roundabouts. We have just started renovation in Temple Bar Gardens, a community garden, adding tree's, shrubs, perennials and wildflowers. Later this year we are planting up a large empty border at the entrance to one of the largest housing estates in Denbigh.
Our projects are for everyone in the community to benefit from.
Each year six local primary schools, a day nursery and residents at the local care home help grow plug plants. Half the plants they grow are featured in the town planters and acknowledged by way of their name. The other half they keep for the benefit of the school/home.

How would this funding have an impact on your community?

Each year our project is growing in volunteer numbers and schools/groups wishing to take part. We have now identified that to include everyone we need to be adding to our planters yearly. We have had permission to include planters on the steps of the Cenotaph, the quote for four planters is £774.00.
The planters contain a self watering system which mean they only need volunteers to water once every 7 days, therefore are the most economical planter we can buy. We can also expect the planters to last for up to 20 years, therefore, many years of use.
The number of volunteers is steadily growing each year. Many are not gardeners and know nothing about plants, however, they love the project and what it is doing for the town. Other groups are also asking to be involved in some way, which is really bringing the whole community together.

"We never could have imagined back in 2016 taht Denbigh in Bloom would hav received the overwhelming commuity support that it has.This is a labour of love for all teh volunteers, we are committed to keep on, not only with our existing projects, but with other plans we have for many years to come."
