Here at Jones Harris we’ve been doing our bit to help The Willow Garden Project to cover Fleetwood with a sea of poppies in remembrance, for Wyre In Bloom.
The aim is to make 10,000 of the significant flowers from recycled plastic pop bottles, in remembrance of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One. Jones Harris receptionist Yvonne Crewe went along to lend a hand and make just a few of them.
A Sea of Poppies in Remembrance
The Willow Garden Project, Fleetwood Town Council and the Memorial Park have been busy making poppies and holding workshops, which will continue until the target is reached. If you’d like to take part you can get in touch with any of them, or look out for details of forthcoming workshops.
If you’ve got any empty bottles to donate they can be dropped off at The Willow Garden Project, the Memorial Park pavilion or at the Town Council office at 122 Poulton Road.
The Willow Garden Project is a ‘food growing’ community garden for adults with disabilities and mental health problems. They grow organic and eco-friendly produce and use horticulture to boost confidence and self-esteem. The site also incorporates a sensory and wildlife area.
With a lot of hard work, enthusiasm and dedication from the founders and all of the volunteers it has really taken off. They are located on land at the back of Fleetwood Cricket Club.
It’s funded by donations, so if your business or organisation is looking for a local good cause to sponsor then please get in touch with us at Jones Harris and we’ll put you in touch with them.
