Golborne’s looking blooming lovely – thanks to these volunteers

by gemmamelling

Have you noticed how much better the area around Golborne library is looking these days?

What was derelict and fairly unkempt land has been tamed by a group of intrepid volunteers, Golborne in Bloom.

The group was established last February and have been working really hard to brighten up the town and put a smile on people’s faces in the process.

Their latest project, which tackled a difficult area of land around the library, including the embankment to the side of Tanners Lane leading under the railway bridge, is a real triumph, as the pictures show.

Volunteers carried out the work over a number of days. It involved clearing back overgrown shrubbery on the embankment and spreading it with woodchip which will help reduce the reappearance of weeds, keeping the area looking nice for a while to come. The group also planted a selection of new plants and flowers as a fantastic finishing touch.

As well as their project around the library, Golborne in Bloom recently cleaned up Peter Kane Square in Golborne, which is also looking much improved as a result of their efforts.
