• Moorsholm in Bloom

September 10 2019

September looks like yet another busy month for the Moorsholm in Bloom team of volunteers.

Moorsholm in Bloom - Back Lane - before.....

As the grass has slowed down in growth, it has allowed time for some team members to undertake other tasks. The strimmers have been used to great effect in tidying up growth that the mowers can't reach...

In the church yard there were two Cotoneaster plants - one small one on the front wall and one large one at the rear. Whilst these plants look great, they tend to work their way into and under walls so both of these were cut right back. The one removed from the rear of the

Moorsholm in Bloom - Back Lane after.....

churchyard was only approx 4-5 years old! You can see the photos in our September gallery.

Other team members have continued to use the mowers to cut a lot of the grass around the village - this included:

  • the whole of the church yard

  • the long flower border on the High Street

  • the grass bacnk by the bus turning circle

  • the grass banks around the village hall

  • the verges on Freebrough Road from the village hall to the gateway before the Moorsholm sign

  • the grassed area to the rear of Manor

Fruit trees by the allotments


  • the grass outside the allotments

  • the verges by the clubhouse on Guisborough Road

  • the grassed area at the beginning of Back Lane

Also, the quiet garden in the church yard had

an autumn tidy up. Plus narcissus and tulip bulbs were planted in the black troughs by the church yard

There were thirteen volunteers working today for two hours, so twenty six "man hours" spent. Costs were approx £25 - mostly on fuel for the mowers/ strimmers
