Pill in Bloom
Pill in Bloom volunteers take care of the village tubs, planters and flower beds. The Parish Council provides funds to buy plants and bulbs to keep Pill blooming. We use perennials where possible to reduce plastic waste.
Origins and aims
Founded in 1984, Pill in Bloom is a friendly group of volunteers with the common aim of enhancing our local environment by planting and tending containers and various beds around the village. We form a sub-committee of Pill and Easton-in-Gordano Parish Council, who fund our activities with an annual grant.
In spring and autumn we plant up 16 containers, two beds on the Green, ‘Albert’s Boat’ and the surrounding area at the Fire Station. Also the bed by the recycling area behind the precinct and the hanging baskets in the Precinct. These are maintained throughout the year by the volunteers and we have occasional working parties for larger projects, such as planting daffodils opposite St Katherine’s School on entry to the village and clearing brambles and overgrowth by the King’s Head to improve the appearance through the village.
We have occasional Committee meetings, and communication is usually done by email.
We would welcome new volunteers to contribute fresh ideas and help with the hands-on practical work. Also helpers we could call on from time to time to assist with watering during the summer months and holiday periods.

We welcome anyone who's interested to keep our tubs, beds and planters looking good. No gardening experience required. Our working parties are a fun way to meet others with similar interests, to keep fit and make a difference locally.
