    Recycled ToolsIt would be a “No thank you” to chemicals (very often out of date and dangerous), electric machinery or the general plastic flower pots, as we have 1000s of those.

    The ARCH Community Group are ideally looking for working tools that are no longer required by the current owners, that community groups so often need.  Organisations often “donate” a tree to be planted but the charity/school will not have a spade to dig the hole or compost to plant it with.  So they can incur costs even from a donation.

    ARCH are also working with schools across the area to encourage young people to grow and nuture gardens, to learn about plants, vegetables and wildlife.  Looking at the environment as a whole.  Very often there is no equipment available and they are relying on donations.  This is where we can help.

    Please contact us if you can help.

    Press Release – 7th February 2011

    “Flowers, Bees, Butterflies and Trees”
    On Thursday 3rd February ARCH Community Group officially signed their Constitution and are now a recognised Group in the Community. The Committee is made up of 7 volunteers from a variety of backgrounds that are giving up their time to get involved with local residents and groups.
    This group of individuals are volunteering their time to run Stevenage, Letchworth and Hitchin In Bloom competitions this year, as well as to help schools and community groups in the area with wildlife and/or garden clubs and environmental projects.
    They are keen to get the local community involved in making the towns and communities a better place to be. By holding an annual garden competition they hope that everyone will get out in to their gardens and enter the In Bloom competition, creating a better place for the people living there.
    The start of this year’s In Bloom competition will begin by inviting the winning schools from In Bloom 2010, to enter a painting competition, with the theme of “Flowers, Bees, Butterflies and Trees”. The winner will have their entry used on all the promotional material for In Bloom 2011.
    The committee has already donated many hours to get the group off the ground and are all looking forward to the forthcoming competition and projects in the year ahead. If you would like to get involved either as a sponsor or volunteer, please call Steve on 01462 420598 or 07738 626580, for more information.
