About this cause
Tulips are displayed all around the town from March to May in the annual Tulip Festival. This is enjoyed by all and many people thank us for the pleasure it brings, particularly through difficult times. New volunteers of all ages and abilities are always welcome and we offer a ‘Buddy’ service, so it’s easier to join and make friends..
How this cause brings people in the community together
The annual Tulip Festival cheers and inspires people, encouraging them to stop and chat and perhaps plant flowers themselves. A leaflet including tulip types, photos and a locations map is widely distributed to shops, cafes, care homes, housebound library users and befriending networks. It is also on the NBIB website along with a constantly expanding page of tulip photographs.
