Twenty five years ago a group of enthusiastic volunteers became Sleaford in Bloom. It has continued to function successfully ever since and prides itself on working alongside others to maintain and improve the quality of the town's environment.
We recently held a very successful fundraising Coffee Morning and Plant Sale at West Hayes, Northgate, the home of Pauline and Robin Dobson. As well as enjoying excellent coffee and delicious cakes visitors were able to buy and swap garden plants and support various stalls, including one with Mothers’ Day gifts just in time for the following Sunday.
magnificent sum of £1018.80 was raised and all proceeds will be used to
purchase plants, seeds and compost for the many containers around the town, to
be filled with beautiful flowers for everyone in Sleaford to enjoy throughout
Sleaford in Bloom would like to thank Tesco for its generous donation of refreshments and Lesley Sergeant for her help. We also say a big ‘thank you’ for the generous support of everyone who donated gifts and plants and all who came along to the event.
This Pebble Mosaic was created by the MosArt community group of artists from Sleaford and surrounding villages. It is situated at the entrance to Rauceby Banks and was funded by the David Trethewey Memorial Fund as part of the Rauceby Banks Project.
It has enhanced the area of seating, making it very interesting and attractive, with the flow of the River Slea represented in varied shades of grey and blue.
The Pebble Mosaic was officially opened on 11th October 2017 by the Mayor of Sleaford, Councillor Jan Mathieson. Speeches were also given by Ada Trethewey, the Chairman of Sleaford in Bloom, on the Rauceby Banks Project in memory of her late husband David, Ladey Adey on the Pebble Mosaic Project and Pauline Dobson on the history of the Rauceby Banks and upper Slea.
