Dalston in Bloom 2012 - volunteers get to work in the village
Following on from the preparation for last year's Cumbria in Bloom competition, a small group of enthusiastic villagers have come together to discuss plans for the future. To date they have plans to create Christmas themed hanging baskets in The Square, a display of decorated Christmas trees in St Michael's (see Dates for Your Diary), planting of spring bulbs in various village locations, planning for summer baskets and planters in the absence of any plants from Carlisle City Council and autumn planting and improvements to the spring/summer flowering areas in the Churchyard.

Other tasks have been identified such as weed spraying (Carlisle City Council), on going litter picking, basket feeding and watering as well as general planting.
