We now have an active co-ordinating committee in place to support the work of the excellent volunteers and it is meeting on a monthly basis.
We have support from Ashworth Hospital, Kennet Prison, The Parkhaven Trust, Altside Business Village, Maghull Town Council and Sefton Council.
The next big step will be to make a Town Entry to North West in Bloom as opposed to the individual Neighbourhood entries that the volunteers have previously submitted over the past 3 years.
The hugely successful Maghull Station Volunteers are of course part of the project and at our last co-ordinating meeting we had visitors from Melling in Bloom and Maghull Photography Club. The Melling in Bloom Volunteers are a fledgling group who did their first significant display in 2010 and they want to learn from the more established Maghull volunteers how to take things to the next stage. The Photography Club have been invited to help with the publicity of Maghull in Bloom.
So far all is going well and I am delighted to be working with both ‘In Bloom’ Groups who have such a positive outlook for their two communities.
