A popular ‘Parish in Bloom’ project in Fawley will continue to flourish for another year thanks to support from local businesses including ExxonMobil, which has contributed £1,000 towards this year’s planting.

The collaborative scheme was launched in 2016 by Fawley Parish Council and has brought a splash of colour to the local community ever since.  Attractive wooden planters were installed to brighten up the area and promote a feeling of pride in the local environment.  The planting is carried out twice a year by the team at Copthorne Nursery in Fawley, who help adults with learning disabilities to develop horticultural skills.

Fawley Parish Council Chairman Alan Alvey said: “We are immensely grateful to ExxonMobil Fawley and all the other local businesses which have contributed towards the Parish in Bloom project. The scheme is extremely popular with local residents, and we regularly receive positive comments about it. This is a wonderful example of partnership working and shows what we can achieve when the community comes together.”

Angharad Vaughan, Community Affairs Adviser for ExxonMobil Fawley, said: “The Fawley site has supported the ‘Parish in Bloom’ scheme for several years and we have been excited to see it flourish.  We are delighted that our latest contribution will bring colour to our community and put a smile on people’s faces.”
