After Meriden’s great success with Britain in Bloom and Heart of England in Bloom this year, our Bloomers group is keener than ever to start planning for next year and make 2016 even more of a success.To do this we are asking you to join us and do whatever you can, however small to help. We want our village to look better every year and we would like to get as many people involved to make that happen.

In the next couple of months we will also be starting a community allotment, we have had a plot kindly donated by Meriden Parish Council at the Leys Lane site, which we will be clearing and hopefully preparing for the growing season. It would be great if we could get as many people as possible to volunteer to be involved in this and would ask anyone with an interest to come and join us. This is a chance for people from all aspects of our community to come together, socialise and be part of hopefully producing some great results in our first year of growing!We would like to grow some vegetables, as well as plants and flowers for next year’s Bloom, and ask anyone if they can spare a bit of time to come down and see what it’s all about.

If this is something you might be interested in or just keen to find out more about what we are doing then please get in touch, we welcome volunteers of all ages to be a part of this fantastic community project. Chris Dean, Meriden Bloomers Community Project. Please email or 01676 522474.
