Over sixty volunteers enjoyed the sunny evening to plant bedding plants in the borders and flower beds of the churchyard. Middlewich Clean Team volunteers had organised more than sunshine though and members of the Cubs, Brownies, Sea Cadets and the Boys Brigade were all kept busy planning and made an excellent job of it.
Middlewich Town Mayor and Clean Team Committee member Bernice Walmsley, attended the proceedings and commented that, “It was great to see the community coming together on a beautiful evening to help the town. The churchyard looks beautiful and all these young people from the community groups have played their parts.”
The plants were sponsored by Middlewich Town Council, Middlewich Southway Tesco and Cheshire East Council and Refreshments were served by the Mother’s Union.
Janet Chisholm, our Chairperson and founder of the Middlewich Clean Team, says a big thank you to all of the volunteers and organisations who turned out for the ‘brilliant’ evening and said that it was the best organised planting the team have had yet.
