Bolton Gardeners

Bolton Gardeners started life in 2010 as Bolton in Bloom, a small Committee of residents to co-ordinate the village entry in the Cumbria in Bloom competition, with some success. A “History” of what the Committee has achieved can be viewed here.

In more recent years the Committee has assumed responsibilities for a number of other projects in the village, including:
* Tree planting on the Memorial Field
* Planters around the villages and at road entrances
* Planting bulbs and flowers at various locations
* Compost bins and “bug hotel” on the Memorial Field
* Water Trough cleaning and maintenance
* Stone seat and tree seat on the Memorial Field
* Support for litter picks

Bolton Gardeners.

Before the lock-down the Committee invited interested residents to join an informal gardeners’ forum. The aim was to provide a forum for advice and support of village gardeners. During the lockdown there was a great deal of activity, including plant and seed swaps, identifying plants, advice on gardening problems etc, using the village WhatsApp group, and in December a dedicated Bolton Gardeners WhatsApp group was set up. The forum is open to any village resident, and if you would like to join, contact Mike or Helen Gerrish on and leave your name and mobile phone number. There is no subscription fee, and you don’t have to be an expert gardener to be a member.
