SPALDING in Bloom are asking for businesses to help them in keeping the town beautiful.

The group want companies to sponsor three flower containers on bridge street, opposite the Halifax bank.

A sponsorship costs just £60 for a year and goes towards watering, planting new flowers and maintaining pots and containers across Spalding.

For their contribution companies will be able to feature an advertisement on the side of the flower display.

It is hoped that the new contributions will help Spalding once again win the coveted East Midlands in Bloom competition.

The town has won in the past but faces stiff competition from the likes of Holbeach and Long Sutton.

Angela Newton, from Spalding in Bloom, said: “Everywhere we put extra flowers it brightens up the place and just makes it a bit more pleasant.

“If it wasn’t for Spalding in Bloom the town would have 70 fewer hanging baskets and would look a lot duller.”

The group are always looking for volunteers to take on watering duties or to sponsor a flower bed.

Anyone interested in volunteering or taking up a sponsorship can contact Angela Newton on 07939 559764 or 01775 725300, or call in to AP Sales on New Road, Spalding.
