Cranleigh War Memorial & Autumn Planting

Cranleigh War Memorial & Autumn PlantingCranleigh in Bloom has been helping Waverley Borough Council tidy the area around the Cranleigh War Memorial in preparation for Remembrance Sunday.

Volunteers from Cranleigh in Bloom have helped to weed and trim plants in the area and Waverley Borough Council’s contractor Glendale Services have been working on clearing some plants which have died back during the summer. They have taken some samples to find out why this has happened so that a decision can be made about replacements in the future.

Cranleigh in Bloom is also grateful for the work which Cranleigh Garden Services have undertaken during the year around the War Memorial. The local gardening business has been cutting the grass weekly on a voluntary basis to complement the maintenance carried out by Glendale Services.

Cranleigh Parish councillors are carrying out a litter picking session this Saturday, along the route of the Remembrance Sunday parade, to ensure this is free from litter on the day and would be grateful if members of the public could pick up any stray litter. The Parish Council have also paid for the War Memorial to be cleaned.

Cranleigh in Bloom’s grower, David Johnson of Baskets in Bloom, has recently completed the Autumn  planting in the public areas of the High Street and has replanted the Cranleigh Library flower bed with colourful bedding plants.

Several shops in the village have purchased tubs or baskets which together with the displays from larger shops make for a touch of colour throughout the winter months.
