Treasurers Report

This remains unchanged from the last meeting

Judging Day

Liz has made a start with regards to the invites for the Village Hall on Judging Day. So far these include the Vicar, Ron Doughan is now on holiday on the day and has suggested David in his place, Bill Beck who we are waiting a reply from Lesley Smith who we are waiting a reply from and Kaz at the Leopard who we are also waiting for a reply from.


These have been ordered and should be ready in the next week. 100 have been ordered and the cost will be met by Graham.

Entry Form

Sue is yet to send this off with the monies

Launch of In Bloom 2014

Thank you to everyone who attended. There was a report in the Burton Mail and an article has been forwarded to the TVN for the May / June edition.

It was agreed that another date needed to be added for working parties at Holts Lane and the Community Garden. Liz asked if the Green Team at the school is still running and if so might they be interested in helping.

Brian and Emma had completed an audit on the street furniture and the two benches in the car park have been re-varnished and painted. The old bin by the Spotted Dog gift shop has been removed and the bins along the high street have been painted and are now split into two halves, one side for recycling the other for general rubbish.

Itinerary For The Judging Route

The Castle would like to take part as would the Museum however we have yet to hear back from Bill Beck with regards to including the fire station in the route.

We will start at the village hall and walk to the museum. Liz Staples will contact Janet Raynes to see if she is free that day. Amy Cunningham is happy to meet with the judges on the day and do a small presentation with regards to recycling.

The route will then continue up Wakefield Avenue to the Community Garden then onto Holts Lane bus stop then along Park Lane to the Castle. From here it will precede onto the Church and the War Memorial  where Rick and Jane will be. From here onto the allotments then onto the Fire Station and up the by-pass, then down Burton Street along High Street and back up Monk Street to the Village Hall. Individuals will be given an itinerary so that they know how long they have to talk.

Hanging Basket & Floral Display Competition.

Posters are done and ready for printing along with 1500 flyers and Liz will do a list of streets that people are happy to deliver to.

Church 925

We have agreed to make a card for the Church in recognition of the 925 anniversary. Tutbury In Blooms 4th anniversary is on 22nd June 2014.

Hanging baskets

Businesses will be charged £15 for a hanging basket and the Village Hall will have two and the Leopard will have one. Some of the shops want to supply their own.

It was mentioned that Local Vocals would like to sponsor 1 / 2 hanging baskets and put a banner up to promote themselves.

Working Parties

3.5.14 - Litter Pick

7.5.14 - @ 7pm - Working party at Holts Lane Bus Stop

14.5.14 - Working party at the Community Garden


Open Gardens - as the community garden will be open on the  Saturday could there be a plant stall in there to attract more visitors (Maybe the allotment owners might have some spare plants) and maybe a face painter. The Civic Society will be having a stall there on the day. It may be an idea to have the Gold Award on display there for people to see.

Date of next meeting 14 May 2014 at 8pm
