PlantingMossley’s Town Team had a blooming great day when they planted flowers around the town.

The busy folk set about planting around the market place in Top Mossley and also down by the railway station on Manchester Road.

The team aim to improve the living, working, retail and entertainment environment around the town.

Lesley Bill from the Town Team, who was helping with the planting on Manchester Road, said: “The first project was to make a visual impact in the area so we decided to offer every business and resident along the retail section of the road a window box or hanging basket.

“As it is the centenary of the First World War, we have planted red, white and blue flowers in the boxes and baskets.

“We hope that in a few weeks Manchester Road will be blooming lovely!
