Blooming marvellous! New trees and daffodils planted in Angmering
Voluntary group, Angmering in Bloom, have worked in partnership with Angmering Grange Care Home, our new residential, dementia and nursing home coming soon to the local area.
Together they have arranged for four cherry trees to be planted by West Sussex County Council and planted 400 daffodils themselves on the junction of Nursery Road and Roundstone Lane to brighten up the local area.
Volunteer, Judith Cross from Angmering in Bloom said: “Whilst we have a number of very supportive local sponsors our funds will only spread so far so when Angmering Grange Care Home began to build within the village we were thrilled to receive such a positive response from their team when we suggested we work together to plant some much-needed trees in the vicinity.
“After a number of meetings at possible sites we agreed on a site within view of The Grange in Roundstone Lane and Nursery Road where we already have two large flowering beds which we felt would benefit considerably by the addition of some trees.
“Angmering Grange very kindly agreed to fund the cost and planting of the four Cherry trees with Angmering in Bloom planting 400 daffodil bulbs surrounding the trees.”
Wellbeing Coordinator at Angmering Grange Care Home, Natalie Taylor, said: “We are delighted to be supporting this initiative, the Angmering in Bloom committee are unsung heroes and do a great job enhancing and maintaining the natural beauty of the village. We cannot wait to see the trees bloom and brighten up the local area.”
The trees were planted by West Sussex County Council under a specific scheme which includes the general maintenance for the first four years.
