Newbury in Bloom team need your tokens
The team behind Newbury in Bloom are bidding to get their hands on some cash from Tesco.
All of the money that Newbury in Bloom is bidding for is coming from the 5p charge that all have to pay if we use their plastic bags. Grants to Newbury could be as high as £5,000.
Cllr Dave Goff, Leader of Newbury Town Council, said: “We were so pleased with the quality of entrants we had in 2016 and the enthusiasm for the project was great. With the extra funding from Tesco stores we will be able to expand the campaign and enhance the floral displays in the Town for everyone to enjoy throughout the summer. Everyone can help by voting for us when shopping in local Tesco stores – you just need to add your token to the voting boxes in store - please help us to raise as much funding as we can”.
Voting is open in stores from 2 January to 28 January. Customers can cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop.
