Newquay Town Council, Newquay Business Improvement District (BID) and Newquay in Bloom have once again been working together to display colourful hanging baskets throughout Newquay’s Town Centre.

The hope is that the baskets will make the centre of Newquay a brighter and more vibrant place to visit throughout the summer months.

Newquay Town Council’s Environment Service collected and installed the baskets on Wednesday 16 June.

Bob Ollier at Newquay in Bloom added: “Newquay in Bloom have worked with David from Millennium Plants, a local Wholesale Nursery at Goonhavern, in the selection of suitable plant species to provide an excellent array of colour in this year’s baskets. The baskets will enhance and bring colour and vibrancy to our town centre areas, which will be enjoyed by locals and many tourists visiting Newquay this summer.”

A spokesperson from Newquay Town Council commented: “Every year we work alongside Newquay BID and Newquay in Bloom to install hanging baskets in an effort to make Newquay’s Town Centre more inviting to residents and visitors. The baskets really do illuminate the town as you walk through, and we will continue to work with Newquay BID to display this colourful array of flowers throughout Newquay year after year.”

Carla – Marie Jones, Newquay BID Manager, also said: “We are delighted to see the hanging baskets being installed for the coming season and we always love to collaborate with Newquay Town Council. It is great to add a pop of colour and some greenery within the town centre environment once again, it’s become a sort of Newquay tradition throughout the years, and we know everyone loves to watch these flowers come into full bloom over the coming weeks.

BID is super proud to directly be able to fund the provision and ongoing maintenance of 40 traders hanging baskets and we look forward to continuing to work with the council and the wonderful volunteers at Newquay in Bloom for many years to come. Newquay certainly looks better for it which we are sure you will agree. We send our upmost thanks to everyone involved in making this happen, especially the Environment Service Team for installing and keeping these baskets well-tended for the next few months.”
