and Flower tubs.

The Town Council, on an annual basis, works in partnership with local businesses and the community to improve the appearance of the Town and villages. One of the ways we do this is by offering ‘partnership’ arrangements where you can part fund a tub planter or a hanging basket. The council will purchase and put in place the item, all we ask is that you water and nurture it once it is in place.
If you would like to place an order please complete the form below.

The charges to companies are detailed; Oak Tub Planter at £20 each, Hanging Basket at £15 each
