ELSTEAD village green has been brightened up with colourful summer flowers, thanks to a group of keen gardeners.

Forming the Our Elstead campaign with the support of Elstead Parish Council, they sought sponsors for three commercial planters and plants. A rota of volunteers are also responsible for deadheading and watering.

Our Elstead is now a sub-committee of the parish council, aiming to enhance the appearance and image of the village by arranging litter picks, a Christmas tree on the green and planting bulbs and flowers.

The group said they are “grateful” to sponsors VantagePoint and the Holroyd and Butler families, as well as to “Hazelbank Garden Centre for a keen price, Spar for access to their tap and to Richard Awbery for the photograph”.
