Free annuals from Seymour Square

The Team from Marlborough District Council

Twice each year, our gardeners plant thousands of annuals in Seymour Square. With spring here, it’s time for them to be removed and the garden beds prepared for summer planting.

Next week, the beds will be dug over and the poppies, polyanthus, snapdragons, violas and pansies removed. A few tulip bulbs will also be lifted to give away.

Come along on Monday 2 December from 8.00 am to 10.00 am. In the event of rain, the event will be postponed to Tuesday 3 December. Our gardeners will be on site to help. Please bring your own fork and containers.

A young life changed

The Team from Graeme Dingle Foundation

An 11-year-old Bay of Plenty boy may look like an ordinary child, but the challenges he has faced and the struggles he’s overcomes set him apart from the crowd.
