New flower beds have been planted opposite Hereford Railway Station, in an effort by volunteers from Hereford in Bloom to give onlookers a colourful welcome to the City.
Mayor of Hereford Kath Hey was in attendance with the volunteers yesterday, celebrating the fantastic work which comes as a result of a Grant of £5000 from Hereford City Council, the Parish Council for the City of Hereford.
Comprised of dedicated Volunteers, Hereford in Bloom have been responsible for much of the City’s aesthetic appeal in recent years, enacting innovative projects to ensure our City stays clean, green and a better place for everyone. Their work focuses on protecting and enhancing the natural environment of the City, and Hereford City Council are proud to back their hard efforts.
The Hereford Community Clean-Up Group, who have been helping maintain the City’s parks and streets, also lent a hand, clearing the way for the flower beds.
Mayor of Hereford, Kath Hey said; “The City Council are very happy to support the exceptional work of Hereford in Bloom, and it’s amazing to see the final result of the funding in person. Those who have worked on the project have showed an inspiring commitment towards keeping the City looking in its prime.”
Grants are available for community groups helping to make our City a better place; for more information, see here. For more information on Hereford in Bloom, or to help the volunteers, visit the Hereford in Bloom website here.
