hanging basketsThe Dorchester Business Improvement District (DBID) is looking to help brighten up Dorchester town centre for this very special summer and is looking for a local supplier of colourfully stocked hanging baskets – Can you help?

The DBID is wholly funded by the shops and businesses of Dorchester which means that this is a contribution from the traders to help improve further the ambience and vitality of the town. DBID are also looking at the option of some large tubs to be planted up in the centre for further shrubs and greenery but this may be a second stage depending on costs.

Project Director Phil Gordon commented “I know we have some very green fingered gardeners in Dorchester so we hope to find either a company or an individual who would like to help us brighten up the town by supplying us with around 30 hanging baskets. Maybe the local horticultural society or some other gardening group could be interested in some funds for their organisation? We are delighted to be partnering the Town Council on this project as they already provide some beautiful hanging baskets in the town centre. We can share their expertise and they have agreed to extend their watering service to our extra baskets”.

Town Clerk Dennis Holmes says “The Council has a long record of doing what it can to promote the economic vitality of Dorchester.  We are delighted that the BID are going to provide more hanging baskets this Summer and we are very happy to be able to help them by watering them every day.  Dorchester is already a very attractive town, and increasing the quantity of our summer floral displays will increase its attraction even more.”
