Hykeham in Bloom

Hykham In Bloom 2020

2020 Started well for the Bloom Team with all the planters still showing off the winter colour. During March we carried out a project in the Old Orchard off  St Aiden's Park with wildflower seeding, painting the benches and our youngest member Tomas and friends building a Bug Hotel             Bug Hotel, The Orchard, St Aidens Park                         Bench Painting in the Orchard, St Aiden's Park

We also ordered a variety of bird and bat boxes, which will be fitted in the Old Orchard and an area offf Water lane, this project will be carried out late 2020 or early 2021.

Covid-19 -  due to the restrictions and for safery reasons the team continued to stay in touch via emails and phone calls until we were able to plant up for the summer, which was done late June.  The planters flowered well over the summer months and we hope they made our town a bit more colourfull.

Winter planting took place towards the end of October and we are hoping many will flower before the frost slows down the growth.
