A riot of colour will bloom next spring in Snailwell, thanks to a dozen villagers who turned out to plant daffodil bulbs on Saturday.
Snailwell Parish Council organised a litter pick and planting session around the village, including at St Peter’s Church in Church Lane.
Volunteers filled 20 bags with rubbish and helped to plant 500 daffodil bulbs, after which they enjoyed a bowl of soup, tea and cakes.
“The litter pick went really well,” said parish councillor Esther McVee.
“We had a dozen people turn up and picked 20 bags worth of rubbish, so the village looks much cleaner.
“We tidied throughout the village because we get lorries coming through so there is a lot of rubbish left.”
She added: “We planted 500 daffodil bulbs so we’re hoping that by spring time there will be a riot of colour down by Church Lane.”
It was the second litter pick organised by the council, after a previous event held earlier this year.
Esther added: “We did one previously in the spring and planted snow drops. More people turned up this time so I think we will plan another one in the future.”
