Look around Golborne and you’ll see planters full of glorious flowers, neatly tended shrubbery and planting in all key areas of the town.
Now the group of hardworking volunteers responsible – Golborne in Bloom – are planning to enter the town into the regional NW in Bloom Competition for the first time.
Claire Baker from the Golborne in Bloom Committee, said: “We are excited to announce that after five and a half years of hard graft, we now feel ready to enter the NW in Bloom competition.
“We are extremely grateful to all our sponsors and Wigan Council for their support. Also to our volunteers, who are amazing – having donated a joint 485 man hours so far this year alone in making Golborne bloom.”
The competition will be independently judged on 4 August – and it’s not too late to play your part to help Golborne to victory! If you can spare a few hours of your time to join the volunteers, you will be made most welcome.
The group are now concentrating their efforts on the Town Centre areas – Peter Kane Square , Tanners Bankside and Golborne Library Fairy Garden, as well as their ongoing projects, which include The Heritage Trail and Millingford Brook (near to Golborne Lidl).
Volunteer for Golborne in Bloom
The group meet every Thursday & Saturday morning at the back of Golborne Library- equipment & refreshments are provided. Even if you don’t consider yourself to be green fingered, there are still lots of ways in which you can help.
Meanwhile, even if you aren’t volunteering, you can help Golborne’s bid to become the NW in Bloom champion by keeping the town free of weeds and litter.
Good luck Golborne!
