Photographer Andrew Sheppard, who has run Avon Studios in Kineton Road for the past 15 years, has been busily planting daffodil and tulip bulbs outside his shop to brighten the area up in the spring.
“This year we were runners up in the regional competition and won a silver award,” he said. “It’s a great village – and has everything a proper village needs – excellent school – where I used to go, so it must be good – church, pubs, shops and a thriving community.”
“Wellesbourne in Bloom, who want to encourage residents and businesses to do their bit to help, are keen for us to brighten up the approaches to the village, and planting some spring bulbs outside my studio seems a good place to start.
“The in Bloom committee is also encouraging villagers to think about substainability, recycling and reducing litter and graffitti.
“I was brought up in Wellesbourne and have worked here for the past 18 years. I really love where I work and want to do all I can to make sure it stays a brilliant place to live – and it would be great to receive the acclaim it deserves by winning Warwickshire’s Best Kept Village competition next year.”
Charlotte Whyte (Digital imaging Manager) from Avon Studios sets to work planting daffodil and tulip bulbs to increase Wellesbourne’s chances of winning the county’s Best Kept Village competition in 2007.
