Home Clubs & Orgs Flowers: Ilkley in Bloom
Flowers: Ilkley in Bloom PDF Print E-mail





Ilkley in Bloom volunteers meet on a Sunday morning at 10 am in the Contract Area of the Central Car Park. Other working times are arranged as required. New volunteers are MOST welcome.



If Sunday morning is a problem, but you would still like to volunteer, please contact me as we do work at other times, and we could also suggest areas where you could work at a time to suit yourself. 


With cuts in Council funding more support is vital if Ilkley is to continue to look its best at all times.   Every little helps, as they say.


We are continuing to works closely with Bradford Parks and Landscapes to try to lessen the effect of the reduced funding on Ilkley.
