Ferndown wins Bloom prizes - and hopes to be even better next year
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.
And now help is 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. Ferndown town councillor 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."
Jean Read, who is a Ferndown Town Councillor and chairman of Ferndown in Bloom added: "I'm 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."
