Pomeroy In Bloom

A new group ‘Pomeroy in Bloom’ has been set up in the village and will be working alongside the Council to create new planting schemes to improve the look of the village centre and to complement the public realm scheme.

The group has already held a successful fundraising coffee morning and is currently recruiting volunteers. If you’d like to get involved, the group would be keen to hear from you.

For further details contact Pomeroy in Bloom Group Secretary Jane Woods on  janewoodspomeroy@gmail.com
