Congleton In Bloom and all the Its Your Neighbourhood groups are getting ready to greet the North West In Bloom judges on Tuesday.
The judges’ probable route has been checked out and the volunteers were this week watering and weeding the floral displays around the town and in the park.
On Saturday, 20 volunteers turned out to help at Congleton Park. A number of Dane Valley Beavers helped Patti Pinto tread down some newly-laid bark paths through the newly-designed and planted hot and cool borders before they went off litter picking.
They found a lot of litter caught in the perimeters of Daneside Theatre car park and Aldi car park.
Meanwhile Dave Brown, Glen Williams and Geoff Mitchell were busy removing perennial docks from the Riverside Garden, near the park on the path towards Aldi.
This Saturday, volunteers will be out again from 10am to noon, based at the community gardens. Once again, weeding, deadheading roses and litter picking will be on the to-do list.
The final clean-up session will be the night before judging, Monday, from 6pm starting at the community gardens and working through the town centre.
Volunteers are welcome to go along and join in.
