Tubs in the village

The ‘ Shotley Bridge Bloomers’ have now finalised plans to brighten up the conservation area with planters full of winter pansies and spring daffodils.

With a grant from the Derwent Valley Partnership, the Trust is looking to provide 45 tubs in the centre of the village and at Snows Green, by the end of September this year.

Volunteers will maintain the tubs and plant them up with summer bedding next year. Sponsors are being sought and fund raising events are to be organised for this.

The project is part of the Trust’s entry in the Britain in Bloom Neighbourhood Awards.

    Will the plans be available on this website? It would be nice to know where they are going.

      There are plans available, but of too poor quality for posting. When we know exactly how many tubs can be provided I shall post a better map on this site. At present we are still awaiting final approval of a £2000 grant from the Derwent Valley Partnership.
