Keep Jersey Tidy - Jersey Spring Clean

St Helier Community in Bloom Group and West of town community group with volunteers carried out a beach clean on Sunday 4th March .The weather was kind at 1st but luckily the heavens opened as we left the beach.

One team walked out to Elizabeth castle an islet cut off by the tide. The items collected on the surrounding beaches, which were mainly fishing related.

The other volunteers searched through the beach defences and found a good quantity of plastic bottles and other discarded items. Some of the team will be constructing a sculpture with these items , we will post a few photos of the finished product before putting it on public display.

Britain in Bloom

Since it started back in 1963, Britain in Bloom has grown into the largest horticultural campaign in Europe. Every year, hundreds of communities all bring a great deal of horticultural skill and enthusiasm to one common aim: to regenerate local environments by the imaginative planting of trees and shrubs, flowers and landscaping and by dealing with local environmental issues.

Each region organises their own competition, the winners of which become finalists on a national level and are judged by RHS experts. The Regional Competition takes place during July, and the announcement of winners and awards ceremony taking place in October.

New volunteers are always welcome to join the St Helier Community in Bloom Group, Contact Tony Andrews on 811700 or email anthony.andrews@posh.gov.je for more information.
