Volunteers from St Annes in Bloom are busy getting planters ready to be displayed around the town.

Christine Holland, from St Annes in Bloom, said: “The tubs are planted with perennials which we grew on our allotment, as we are trying to lower our carbon footprint and use plants

“We are busy getting the permanent planters ready by repairing, repainting and planting up all the inserts.

“This year we will be working with the council in the Peace and Happiness Gardens and taking on new work to replant the large tubs which have been neglected for some years.
