Bury in Bloom is a charity that employs only one part time person – the Bury in Bloom Co-Ordinator – and we are therefore completely dependent on the many enthusiastic volunteers is all the areas in which we are involved. Without out them, and the backing of our sponsors, this very successful organisation could not exist. There are lots of ways to get involved depending on the time you have available. This can be from just a few hours a day, a few hours a week, or a few days a year. We are very happy you can help us however much time you can offer. Please give us a call to make friends and enjoy some gardening fellowship with likeminded people.
