At the AGM of Oulton Community Group it was decided to enter the Best Kept Village again this year.
We have done very well over the past 8 years and would like to build on that success. All the village planters and troughs are in place with Spring planting and an ongoing programme of Summer bedding is being worked upon. The sponsored beds at the Village Hall have proved a great success in previous years and, no doubt, will again this year.
Many thanks to those villagers and businesses who have sponsored the planting schemes and we hope that you will continue to do so this year. We do understand the time constraints on people nowadays and appreciate the fact that most villagers do their bit by keeping their own little bit of Oulton clean and tidy, including keeping front gardens neat, picking up litter and cleaning up after ther pets.
The OCG is run by a group of volunteers and all the planting is funded by sponsorship. Any help, financial or practical, to maintain the village to a high standard would be most appreciated. If anyone would like to help you can visit our website and use the contact us page www.oultonstone.org.uk or by calling Andy on 07851 302860.
Flyers will be going out to all residents in the next few weeks with ideas of how you can help us win this prestigious award in 2017. In the meatime let’s all Keep Oulton Tidy”
