The wet weather didn’t stop a group of busy hands planting 5,000 bulbs to help their village bloom.
Drighlington Conservation Group members were joined by Year 5 pupils from Drighlington Primary School and other volunteers to plant 4,000 purple crocus and 1,000 Tete a Tete yellow narcissus on the grassed area opposite The Brickworks pub.
The project, which was made possible by the support of Coun Bob Gettings and Richard Gill from Leeds City Council, will allow people in the village to see a colourful display in spring next year.
The Conservation Group is now hoping to repeat similar projects in the future at other chosen locations in the village, however as they are such as small group they are hoping more volunteers will come forward to make this possible.
Anyone interested in helping or joining the group can call secretary Elaine Thornton on 0113 2853061.
