Grant helps Stamford High Street containers bloom
Coun Mike Exton and Coun Breda Griffin (both Conservative), pictured, each gave £250 to the Stamford in Bloom team. The money was used to buy flowers to fill 20 containers in the High Street.
Coun Exton said: “Coun Griffin and myself see Stamford in Bloom as a perfect opportunity to support a great local initiative. By making a donation together we have been able to provide significant help.
“Stamford is a lovely town and Stamford in Bloom is adding that little bit extra. It is creating a lot of interest among businesses, shopkeepers and residents.”
The co-ordinator of Stamford in Bloom, Ann Ellis, said: “This donation has been absolutely vital. It allowed us to buy the flowers we needed for our High Street containers.”
Stamford is entered in the heritage towns category of East Midlands in Bloom.
