Planting in Jubilee Park

On Friday November 1st Enfield in Bloom attended an Edmonton and district Rotary Purple4Polio planting in Jubilee Park.
The Mayor Cllr Kate Anolue and Cllr Bernie Lappage were there with Senior and other members of Rotary, in the rain, to encourage the children from Hounsfield and Sparksfield Schools plant thousands of purple crocus bulbs, near the tennis courts, Rotary have been working Worldwide for over 30 years to rid the world of Polio. The colour purple is important as it is the colour of the dye used on children’s fingers when they have been immunised against Polio.

Enfield in Blooms new Memorial Bench

At Contemplation Corner Woodcroft Wildspace N21

Enfield in Bloom wish to thank Bob Ladell and his team at the Woodcroft Wildspace for clearing and establishing an area now called “Contemplation Corner” for our new Memorial Bench.  The bench already has several plaques commemorating Committee Members who have passed, and some of our present Committee had a toast in memory of them.  Our Chairman Dennis planted one of two roses to frame the bench.  A willow arch has been planted and this will eventually shade the area.

ENFIELD IN BLOOM TO THE RESCUE

The ten plant containers outside the Civic Centre had looked very neglected over recent times and Enfield in Bloom decided that some immediate action was needed.

On Friday 2nd November, eleven Committee Members formed a working party to re-plant the containers. They put on their gardening gloves and armed with their trowels got to work in the sunshine.

Clockhouse Nursery very generously donated all the plants and replacement compost.

Residents and visitors to the Civic Centre commented on the hard work going on and the beautiful result of the finished planting.
