Roman Square given floral makeover

Home / Blog / Roman Square given floral makeover

Swale and Sittingbourne in bloom have been working with KCC councillor John Wright, Sheppey college and local businesses to improve Roman Square.

The former and rather unpleasant tree planter on the Sainsburys side of Roman Square has been transformed by students of Sheppey college into a tall brick planter.

Sittingbourne in bloom volunteers, along with Swale Borough Council open spaces team have created a floral display with will be watered by a local Optivo employee.

Funding from Cllr Wright and wheelbarator has enabled Swale in Bloom to purchase two new planters which have been added to the outside area of the Bay leaf café. The owners have kindly agreed to keep the planting watered.

Swale in Bloom Coordinator, Ali Corbel said “The cafés outside area already has seating with planted teapots and the new planters will provide extra colour in the Square, along with lamppost wrap around baskets.”

“Take a look at the library too- this has new planting along the back of the carpark!”

“Sittingbourne in bloom will accompany the Royal Horticultural Society regional judges on their visit to Sittingbourne on Tuesday 2nd July. A tour of the whole town will take place so please make sure your frontages and gardens are looking their best.”

“Everyone can help to make this our 3rd gold winning year.“

Congratulations to all concerned.  That is the kind of regeneration that is both meaningful and worthwhile.  Let's hope that the public will respect it.
