Schools continue to play a major role in the ‘In Bloom’ campaign. Bulb planting in Herne Bay Memorial Park has turned in to an annual event, and children from local schools helped to plant 1,000’s of bulbs in the park commemorating Remembrance Day. Members of the Royal British Legion also took part and supported the event, so that future generations are reminded of the sacrifice made by past generations.
Many of the local primary schools enter the ‘Best School Grounds or Environment’ competition. They are given valuable support for their projects by the Street Scene Section, who make available a range of goods including plants, bark chippings, water butts, and committee members offer support by giving gardening advice.
All schools are provided with a list of materials they can use free of charge, which includes labour, advice and training.
