Loftus Community Forum Planting Session
Thursday 19 October 9am - 12noon
Meeting Place: Please meet at the flower barrels on Loftus Bank near to the stone Loftus sign.
Loftus Community Forum are leading a Love it planting session in partnership with Redcar and Cleveland Council. The LCF planters and barrels require an overhaul as they have become choked with roots so they will be emptied and refilled with a soil and compost mix. The existing bulbs are to be rescued and replanted and the new winter bedding will be planted up.
If you would like to come along and help out, the session starts at the barrel planters on Loftus Bank near the stone Loftus sign at 9am on Thursday 19th October. We will be moving through the town during the day and should finish at Loy Lane if time allows.
