Torrington-In-Bloom is a local community voluntary group who do a huge amount of work across the town looking after flower beds throughout the year helping to increase the aesthetic value of the town as well as the ecological.
T-I-B has been busy over recent weeks; preparing for the year ahead and starting to tidy up some of the areas across the town.
The flower bed by Sing and Gist was tidied a few weeks ago and they hope to fill a few gaps over the next few weeks.
T-I-B commented that they were thrilled to see the wonderful display of spring bulbs in Rack Park, the lovely purple crocus planted by members of the Torrington Rotary Club to publicise their campaign to eradicate polio from the world, and the narcissi planted around the apple trees by members of the local church, Torrington in Bloom members/friends.
The planters in the town square and car parks are also filling out with bulbs and wallflowers, so we should have a good display over Easter and beyond for when visitors are finally allowed to travel far and wide.
Further good news comes from the Men’s Shed who have been busy restoring the planters by the town entrance signs; they have also installed a new one at the bottom of the hill by Town Mills. Members along with the Town Council have also offered to fill the planters with compost and, hopefully, plant them up and manage.
