East Midlands in Bloom Competition 2021

Our plans for EMiB 2021 are being finalised but we hope to include some of the following ideas:

  • Working with the Canal & River Trust to improve the area around Barrow Deep Lock by replacing the current pots with recycled wooden planers.  All current bulbs and plants will be repotted along with a mixture of annuals, all of which will hopefully be grown by volunteers from various horticultural based groups within the village.
  • Wildflowers are being sown around the village during 2021. This includes areas at Millennium Park and along the verge at Cotes Road/Willow Road junction.
  • We planted daffodils in KGV park for the last two years and these are beginning to establish and will look lovely in spring 21.
  • A Front Garden Walk around the village – a joint event currently being discussed with BUSCA and Barrow Open Gardens Team
  • Examples of work carried out by volunteer groups such as the Footpaths Group and Barrow Community Litter Pickers
  • Jerusalem Island Roundabout - the crowning glory in the entrance to the village from the A6
  • Other ideas being discussed.........

Details and photos, routes and maps, will all be made available once plans are firmed up.
