Oakham in Bloom 2021
Working Party Diary
The scheme will be in keeping with our perennial and exotic planting schemes. The planters have been strategically placed to maximise their impact on the High Street. Some areas of the High Street cannot accommodate planters so we have focused on Community Hub, Gaol Street and towards Melton Road where planters and businesses are able to plant. We also have planting at the end of Mill Street with many local businesses and the Courtyard. In addition the Church Street Parking is linked to the market place with memorial bed.
When writing the previous portfolio, who would have imagined the events of 2020 and the Covid pandemic. Thankfully we have lost none of our volunteers to Covid and so we count ourselves as very fortunate and immensely thankful. Such traumatic events do put life and priorities in perspective and make you value the simple things.
