Two women planted more than a thousand discounted late daffodil bulbs on roadsides around Fleet Hargate for eight hours last week to remember the plight of dementia sufferers and their carers.

Pictured are, from left, the two planters, Holbeach parish councillor Joan Woolard and Marcia Abrahams ,and Val Gemmell, who provided transport.

Joan Woolard said: “Narcissus bulbs are used in drugs to treat dementia. We’re planting to raise awareness of dementia and of the drop-in open days specially for carers and sufferers the last Monday and second Wednesday of every month at Holbeach Youth Centre.” (SG260213-127TW)
