I went along to the first public meeting of this new volunteer community group last night in Lydiate Village Centre.
It was pleasing to see Lydiate residents turning out for the meeting where we all learned about progress in setting the fledgling group up.
John and Madelaine Harrison came from the Maghull in Bloom volunteer group to give advice and assistance which was gratefully received.
The plan is to try to start with some spring planting in 2018 possibly via some ‘gateway planters’ on Lydiate’s boundaries with Maghull, Aughton and Down Holland. Other ideas are being considered too but the big job will be to bring in the finances to pay for such projects.
The volunteer group is looking for sponsorship from local businesses and to make grant applications. Lydiate Parish Council is putting £100 in the pot to start things off and helping with grant applications.
As a former Maghull resident I have been volunteering for Maghull in Bloom in recent years and now as as Lydiate resident I’m happy to get involved in Lydiate in Flower as well.
