A small but dedicated group of gardening enthusiasts are trying to bring a sea of colour back into Sutton on Sea and are welcoming new members.

Sutton on Sea Gardening Group was officially constituted in October 2013 and prior to that were an off-shoot of Neighbourhood Management.

Their aim is simple, to bring back colour to Sutton on Sea and keep the area looking neat, tidy and visually smart for both the residents who live in the local community and the many thousands of holidaymakers the area attracts every year.

Chairman of the group, Kath Riggall said: “Sutton on Sea was famously known for its sea of bright, vibrant colours back in the day and we are now trying to bring these bright colours back into the town through plants and flowers once again.”

Working alongside East Lindsey District Council, this band of volunteers have been working hard to make the area look as bright and beautiful as possible.

With many planters and various spots in the town already filled with blooming flowers, the group are now looking at other problem areas in the town where they can work their magic.

Kath added: “We would just like to take this opportunity to thank the many businesses in Sutton on Sea for their kind donations and continued support towards the Sutton on Sea Gardening Group.

“Plus we must also thank Mablethorpe Town Council for presenting us with one of their grants. All of this help and support towards the group is going a long way.”

They help to upkeep of The Diana Princess of Wales Garden, Trusthorpe Road, the High Street Planters and raising funds for other gardening projects.

But, as with any group, to progress further they are in search of some new volunteers to help them in their colourful quest to make the town look picturesque.

You don’t need to have any previous gardening experience to be part of the group, all you need is the enthusiasm and the group will help you with the rest.

The group meet officially every six weeks and meet up when they can to do gardening work.
