A new committee has been elected comprising:
Chair: Peter Thompson, Vice Chair: Alan Somerscales
Secretary: Martin Sizer, Treasurer: Michael Galligan.
The town will not be entering in the East Midlands in Bloom competition, where it has been very successful in past years., winning on a number of occasions and reaching the final of Britain in Bloom. It was felt better to run the annual local events and focus on provision in the town.
Chair Peter Thompson has paid tribute to the work of Deborah Barker: “As Chair for several years Deborah was inspiring in many ways and so much of the achievements regionally and nationally were down to her. Her energy and enthusiasm drove the group forward and her strength in those years was in setting the standard which the new committee will find it hard to match. We wish her well and thank her for creating many memorable moments.”
Members congratulate Michael Galligan for his achievement in West Lindsey Awards Best Volunteer in which he was a runner up.
Open Gardens is on Saturday 24th June and Sunday 25th June when ten gardens at least will be open to the public.
Entry Forms for the various Local Garden Competitions are in Caistor Post Office and Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre.
They should be returned no less than 3 days before Judging Day as stated on the forms.
