Give recognition to volunteer gardeners.

This week I have been talking to Volunteers  with Britain in Bloom. 

The local council workmen where highlighted in the Local paper for watering the pots!

Paid work!

Nothing had been said of the volunteers that retrieved on old boat from the river and planted it up.

Or of the way they had painted the railings onTrent Bridge at Newark.

The council and Britain in Bloom should have some means of making sure that these people and their great efforts do not go recognised.

Unpaid work for keeping our towns clean should not become the norm.

This is not the path we should follow.
