Gardening in Fishguard

Members get involved with maintaining shrubberies in the town

It all started with the Rotary Centenary Rose. The club arranged with the local authority to plant a flower bed on Fishguard’s Golden Mile in West Street with these roses which the Club supplied in 2005. Then the crocus idea was born. In 2012 we planted a drift in the school grounds with the help of the pupils and some more in an area by the Marine Walk. It is planned to plant more crocuses in West Street this year. Meanwhile the cutbacks in local authority spending has ment that they were not able to maintain the beds as well as we would have liked. So the club has taken a more hands on involvement led by John and Wendy Ratcliffe.
