Covering the villages of Wilsden and Harecroft

The Parish Council Green Spaces Group which comprises representatives of the Parish Council, Wilsden Friends of the Park and Wilsden Gardening Association has embarked on the first phase of planting Spring bulbs (daffodils and crocus) which took place on Saturday 22nd October 2016 at sites around the village.

The bulbs have been purchased by the Parish Council with the support of Stephen Smith's Garden Centre, Wilsden.

The sites have been chosen, hopefully, to give the maximum impact and  include the areas around The Welcome To Wilsden stones at Windy Grove and Thornhill Terrace, the Main Street opposite Crooke Lane, the Village Green and around the back of the Village Hall.  It is planned that this is an important step in enhancing green spaces in the village as the Parish Council progressively begins to take over some of the services currently provided by BMDC.

We hope that this first phase will be a success and that in Spring we will see the colourful results of their labours.
