Heptonstall Lights and Planting Group (HeLP)

Xmas-Tree-300Heptonstall Lights and Planting Group (HeLP), originally called the Floral and Festive Lights Group, first met in October 2011. With help from others in the village, the group achieved its first aim which was to get a Christmas tree and lights in Weavers Square. It’s now become an annual event.

HeLP also hold a summer ‘Front of House’ competition and a Christmas wreath competition. Some previous winners:

The group’s other ideas for brightening up Heptonstall all year round include:

  • Troughs/planters for Weavers Square and other suitable locations
  • Planting in the old churchyard
  • Meadow and verge planting with self-seeding plants
  • Asking local gardeners for any surplus plants to use

Any other suggestions would be welcome.  The Group meets every 5 or 6 weeks usually in one of the local pubs. Anyone who is interested is welcome to come along.
