Blooming Businesses in Chapel Allerton

Businesses in Chapel Allerton are proving their green credentials by agreeing to maintain planters near where they are based.
The Community Committee has provided funding of over £950 to cover the cost of the planters and the flowers as well as watering cans and bottles of BabyBio that will be given to the participating businesses to ensure their planters flourish.

Local Councillors Eileen Taylor, Jane Dowson and Mohammed Rafique hope that in addition to the planters making the area look more appealing, the scheme will encourage local businesses to become more involved in the local community and create a sense of pride as they take ownership of the displays.

Councillor Eileen Taylor (Labour, Chair of Inner North East Community Committee) said:
“We really hope that this scheme is the first of many as it makes absolute sense for the maintenance of the displays to be picked up by the local community.

“It really is a win-win situation, it saves the Council money and with a plaque on the planter advertising the business who is looking after it I have no doubt that the businesses involved will become a little competitive as to who has the best looking display!

“I am sure that before long Chapel Allerton will be overflowing with beautifully maintained planters giving a real sense of community pride to the area.”

Robert Burns, from Bob’s Heel Bar, said: “Local businesses are proud of Chapel Allerton and want to work together to keep the area beautiful. We look forward to playing our part in making Chapel Allerton an even better place to live and shop.”
