In recent years it has not always been possible to accommodate all requests to sponsor hanging baskets in the village. However, Erewash Borough Council (through which the scheme is operated) now has extra capacity to take on extra baskets so any resident or business wishing to get involved in the scheme this year is welcome to contact our Parish Clerk.
The cost per basket is £95 per year for a 3 year sponsorship agreement or £165 for a one year agreement.
Unfortunately the closing date for new applications is Tuesday 3 April 2018 so you’ll need to act quickly to avoid disappointment.
The sponsorship agreement includes:-
When suggesting a lamp column(s) on which to mount a flower basket, please remember that the Council is unable to use lamp columns that are made of concrete or cast iron. They are only able to use modern steel lamp columns. Also the lamp column must not have highway signage attached to it and it must have 500mm clearance from walls and other obstructions around it. Also, avoid lamp columns that are overshadowed by trees and tall shrubs so that the plants get plenty of light.
