The power of flowers
Local businesses, parish councils, community groups and residents can show their pride in Erewash by sponsoring flower baskets helping to put the feel-good factor in the borough over the summer.
The sponsorship fee is £99.60 per year, based on a three year contract, and covers everything from the cost of the basket and plants through to watering, maintenance and an optional sponsor plaque.
The colourful baskets are attached to lamp columns and brighten up the towns and villages in Erewash throughout the summer.
Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure says:
“Our sponsorship scheme offers residents and businesses the ideal opportunity to play their part in helping the borough bloom this summer.”
Anyone interested in sponsoring a flower basket needs to apply by Monday 23 March. Application forms can be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0115 907 2244. Applications will be dealt with on a first come, first served basis.
