‘End of an era’ as bulbs to be removed from Newport beauty spot

Written on April 14, 2021

Volunteers will dig up thousands of bulbs from a Newport beauty spot tomorrow ahead of land development, to relocate them elsewhere.

Newport in Bloom chair Karen Claxton said the “sad task” of removing the bulbs, which have been planted around Hutchison’s Way over many years, would mark “the end of an era”.

“Volunteers from Newport in Bloom are removing thousands of bulbs to be re-sited in other project areas around Newport,” she explained.

“This well-used and much-loved area has been a lovely entrance to one of the accesses to Hutchison’s Way. The area was a huge ‘In Bloom’ project in 2007/8, when Newport in Bloom joined forces with Telford & Wrekin Council environmental maintenance, Newport Town Council, Shropshire Wildlife Trust and other agencies to create a local beauty spot.
