Help to make Diss Heritage Triangle look blooming special
PUBLISHED: 11:03 26 April 2019
Volunteers are needed to help give Diss Heritage Triangle a blooming good tidy up.
In order for the historic streets to look their colourful best this spring and summer planters have been provided and planted up by a small band of volunteers and financed by the Diss Heritage Trust and Diss Town Council at the cost of several hundreds of pounds each.
However, help is need maintaining them and watering them to make sure they are looking their best.
Community minded volunteers or those with green fingers are being encouraged join in a maintenance session taking place this Sunday (April 28) at 10am. Everybody is welcome for a couple of hours of planting, weeding and generally sprucing up.
Shelia King, of the Diss Heritage Trust, said: “No experience is required, just enthusiasm, but if you have any tools you could bring - spade, trowel etc – that would be great.
“We also need more volunteers to help with on-going watering of the planters – its ridiculous for the Trust to pay good money for new plants if nobody is willing to maintain them let us know if you're happy to spend just a few minutes a week helping out.
“Remember it is your Heritage Triangle – if people don't want to assist then the planters will probably be removed as we cannot expect the same small group of people to do all the work.”
Volunteers will be meeting meeting at 10am on Sunday behind the council offices on Market Hill. Anyone interesting in helping to maintain the planters can find out more by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
