CHARITIES are invited to have their name written in flowers in some much-loved Weymouth public gardens.
Weymouth Town Council is inviting local causes to apply for a chance of being next year’s floral bedding design in Greenhill Gardens.
Applications for the 2024 display are now being taken to replace the current arrangement which is in celebration of King Charles’ coronation.
Every year, skilled gardeners from the council meticulously arrange thousands of plants to recreate a charitable organisation’s emblem in the flowerbed at the heart of the gardens.
Mayor of Weymouth, Cllr Kate Wheller, said: “This is a great initiative that the council do each year, so I encourage any charitable organisations to apply to be in with the chance of having a flower bed design created to celebrate them!”
The eye-catching displays are popular amongst residents and visitors of the town, with charity MV Freedom being awared the display in 2022, and a 'Thank you to the NHS' theme was used in 2021 to recognise the contribution of NHS staff during the pandemic.
For more information about the floral bed designs or how to apply, contact Emily Brown by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, October 6.
