Bampton in Bloom: the Workers

Having so many floral displays throughout the summer means that gardeners are needed throughout the year. These photos, although a year or two old, show the work being done!

Early in the season, the beds have to be planted - and fed. This is the 'hot bed' at the top of Luke Street.

In Brook Street, gardening can be hazardous - stepping in the wrong place whilst tending the baskets can result in wet feet.

It's not just the gardening - it is making sure the town in clean and tidy - when it comes to picking up the litter, all are invited to take a hand.
