Parts of Congresbury are set to be adorned with colour in the coming months, after the Blooming Congresbury project unveiled its plan for the village in 2017.

Blooming Congresbury was formed last year by villagers who wanted to make their village a more attractive place.

The group revealed on Monday that it planned to overhaul the Geoffrey Peacock memorial garden, in Broad Street, by replanting part of it.

Organisers have also ordered some 1,800 flowers to be positioned throughout Congresbury, while hanging baskets will also be available for traders to purchase for display outside their shops.

Member Di Hassan said: “Hopefully we will be nice and colourful again this year.”
