Blooming meeting

The ‘Blooming Shotley Bridge’ group’ held a walkabout in the village today to decide on the boundary for the Britain in Bloom Neighbourhood Award, for which the Village Trust intends to register.

It was also looking at potential sites for improvement within the Conservation Area.

The ‘Shotley Bridge’ entry signs on the River Derwent Bridge, on the A691 near Shotley Grove Road and on the A694 near the Spa Grounds are to be used to define the extent of the neighbourhood, but whether to go beyond Snows Green as far as Elm Park has still to be decided.

Photographs, for display at the next open meeting of the Trust, are to be taken of the potential sites that could be improved or planted with bulbs and flowers. An action plan and funding will need to be discussed at the next meeting of the group.
