Grayshott will be blooming even bigger and brighter than ever this year with the help of a brand new watering system donated by Grayshott Pottery.


The bright yellow bowser and trailer, which cost over 2,000, can be now seen working throughout the village and has enabled the BiG (Buy in Grayshott) project organisers to roll out an appealing floral display again.


We were delighted to help this year by providing the bowser watering system, and hope that the village residents and their visitors will get a lot of pleasure out of the wonderful display both this year and for many years to come, says Phil Bates, trustee for Grayshott Pottery Employee Trust.


This years Grayshott In Bloom project was planned and organised by Caroline Kaighin and BiG, and could not have gone ahead without the hard work and the generosity of the many local businesses and individuals.


This has been a truly collaborative effort and I would like to convey my thanks to the business owners/managers and also to Hidden Gardens garden scheme, who all generously donated cash to this project, says Adrian Banwell, chair of BiG.


Without them there would be no floral display and in this particular year that would have been a real shame.


Around 65 hanging baskets, planters and flower mangers now feature in the centre of the village, in and around the Headley Road, Crossways Road and The Square.


The scheme that is bursting with Jubilee-themed colour planting comprises nine different varieties of flower including Begonia, Calibrachoa, Diascia, Fuchsia and Geranium and the village organisers hope that everyone will enjoy the display.
