Our Head Office is based in the picturesque village of Draycott in Derbyshire. The village has an incredible community group, made up of volunteers who dedicate their time to planting floral installations around the village, in order to participate in both the regional and national RHS ‘In Bloom’ competitions. The theme this year is twofold; celebrating the Suffragette movement, and 100 years since the end of WW1. The village is full of beautiful purple, white and green flowers and features a ‘living wall’, as well as a number of flowery welly boots. To find out more about the project, listen to BBC Radio Derby’s recent interview with the group.
Envireau Water is pleased to have sponsored the Draycott in Bloom project since its inception, and this year our team is lending a helping hand by watering the pots and borders of the church opposite our office. Did you know? The group has a rainwater harvesting agreement with the church where rainwater is collected from the gutters, stored in water butts and used to water the flowers around the village.
We’re thrilled to be able to support our local community and want to thank the ‘DIBers’ (Draycott-In-Bloom-ers) for making Draycott, such a lovely village to work in. Good luck for both the East Midlands in Bloom and Britain in Bloom competitions taking place this summer.
