SPRING/SUMMER 2019

 

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.

 

For further details please contact the Secretary, Kate Brown on 01943 604521 or email:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
