A Pickering street has been spruced up, thanks to the efforts of Pickering & District Civic Society and Pickering in Bloom.

Members from both organisations spent time at Orchard Close recently to install an attractive new planting scheme.

Money for the project arrived via North Yorkshire’s Green Neighbourhood Challenge and was supplemented by sponsorship from RV Roger nurseries, Pickering, and the Co-op which allowed for the purchase of trees and shrubs for a scheme designed by Susan Strange.

Then with the help of Jeremy Strange and Pickering in Bloom’s Margaret Hemmings and Catherine Stables, a new border was planted out, along with a Rowan sapling.

This is latest scheme involving the two organisations and follows previous plantings at Smiddy Hill, Willow Court and Wilf’s Café to help brighten up Pickering - along with numerous other sites voluntarily maintained by the in bloom group.

Anyone interested in becoming a member of either community group should contact (01751) 477113.
