Ferndown has won two silver awards in this year’s Britain in Bloom competition: one for the town centre and one for facilities around the town. Help is now needed to turn 6,300 bulbs into a host of golden daffodils.
The bulbs have been donated by Ferndown NeighbourCars, a driver service which takes residents aged over 55 to hospital, dentist, doctor, shopping etc. Cllr Joyce Little, who organises the service explained: “Our drivers are paid a mileage allowance from clients’ donations and money left over is given to local charities and other voluntary organisations.”
Cllr Jean Read, chair of Ferndown in Bloom added, “We are very grateful for this generous donation which we will use to brighten up Ringwood Road and help make Ferndown look even more beautiful next spring.”
Residents and councillors are invited to gather at 288 Ringwood Road at 10am on Saturday 12 October. Please bring your own gardening tools and help Ferndown turn gold next year.
