A tribute to our fellow member and Treasurer Bill Bell, who sadly died earlier this year.

Bill's favourite tree, a Rowan tree, was selected by Bill's wife Ann, was donated by Brough In Bloom.

It was planted on High Road, Elloughton overlooking his home and British Aerospace, where he worked for a many years.

Bill was Treasurer for Brough in Bloom for over 21yrs. He also made bird boxes and also planted many trees in the area.

Wild Flower Area Extended.

We have extended our Wild Flower area on Welton Low Road, Elloughton to twice the original size.

The bee hive is also with message Bee Kind Plant Wild Flowers.

However because of the current dry spell getting them watered was a problem. Fortunately our local fire team brought a Fire Engine out whilst they were off duty to help.
