Green Bayle

The Bayle Bloom 2021 has been a successful fundraiser with generous donations being made by local residents, businesses and others. We thank all those who supported us to make The Bayle more beautiful, whether it was through their additional contributions at the time of paying their annual subscriptions or in response to this appeal.

St. Eanswythe’s CE Primary School supported this initiative with a “Tag day”, a non-uniform day where children and parents made donation in support of Bayle Bloom 2021, on 19th May. We would like to thank the school staff, the children and their families for supporting us. Thanks also goes to Mrs Alison Edgar and her pupils of year 2, who have grown different plants in their class and created a hanging basket, which will be displayed locally.

Please, leave us some comments or feedback of what you think of the Trail and any suggestions for future activities via e-mail at:

Finally a big “Thank you” to Debbie, Sigrine, Helenor, Hasu, Ann-Charlotte and Carl for your help with preparations!

Green Bayle is an initiative from our Association to promote a more sustainable and colourful lifestyle in and around The Bayle – leaving our planet and our future in good shape for the next generation. It also aims to bring colour, wildlife and beauty to our area through sustainable planting throughout the year.

Early spring 2021 preparation of our green spaces – Bayle Pond Gardens and The Parade Community Garden

We always welcome volunteers and anyone local who wants to get involved

We live in a particularly beautiful area and we all want to preserve the special qualities of The Bayle.

With our own garden spaces limited, we encourage members to get involved with ideas and contributions for extending garden flowers to bring more colour to this already unique area. Our members contribute to these efforts by planting in public spaces, looking after the hanging baskets, maintaining and watering and donating plants to various green spaces. We welcome contributions……from donations of plants, weeding, pruning or planting.

How about creating your own colourful window or doorstep box? We have experienced members to advise you on the choice of plants and maintenance in a sustainable way. Join our Green Bayle team!

What did we achieve in 2020?

Click on the link above to have a look at the Green Bayle Report 2020. We could not have done it without all the enthusiasm and dedicated volunteer time of our families, friends, neighbours and BRA members. All the recognition is going to them!

The Fields in Trust group have done some interesting work showing that many of our green spaces nationally are at risk. You can find out more about their work from their website, with the link from here
