Volunteers help town bloom

A community space is in blossom after volunteers spruced it up together with Holbeach in Bloom.

Lincolnshire Co-op colleagues and members re-planted the borders and tubs around All Saints’ Church in the town as part of the Big Co-op Clean, on Thursday, June 6.

Colleagues from its Swineshead Food Store, Gosberton and Holbeach post offices, Holbeach and Spalding funeral homes, and its Head Office in Lincoln were among those who gave their time.

It’s hoped the new blooms they planted together – grown by Holbeach in Bloom’s volunteers – will help the town retain its ‘In Bloom’ status.

Lincolnshire Co-op Gosberton Post Office Clerk Sue Ladym said: “I come from Holbeach and I feel proud to have done it.

“We saw a couple of our customers who congratulated us on the job we were doing, and some of the local people stopped and thanked us for helping.

“The Holbeach in Bloom committee are striving to get the town a Gold again, which they won last year, and it’s nice to think we’ve been part of it.”
