‘Pontefract will be blooming beautiful’

Have your say

Members of the community have launched a Pontefract in Bloom group to brighten up the town.

They will be working to install floral displays, hanging baskets and planters in time for summer, in partnership with Ackworth’s First Impressions Nursery.

And they are asking local businesses and individuals to come forward and sponsor the project,

Group secretary Colin White said: “More flowers in our streets will greatly enhance the appearance of the town centre and improve the experience for visitors to Pontefract for shopping, the markets and events in the town.”

A list of all sponsors will be displayed in the town centre.

The flowers will be in place from June to October.

Anyone wanting to get involved in the project is asked to ring Dr White on 07876234054.
