A community has come together to carry out mass Spring bulb planting.
The green-fingered initiative, which has seen more than 2,000 bulbs being planted, has taken place in the parish of Croxden.
A spokesman for the group said: “Croxden Parish Council and residents of Beamhurst are delighted to announce that 2,000 plus Crocus bulbs have now been planted at the entrance to Beamhurst, along the main grass verge in the centre of the hamlet.
“Residents suggested the project to the parish council and with agreement from Staffordshire County Council Highways.
“A wonderful display of purple and white Crocus should appear in Spring next year. ”
The spokesman added: “The Spring Bulb Project also involved Daffodils and each house, within the parish, along the A522, Beamhurst, have been provided with some Daffodil bulbs.
“Residents will plant these in front of their houses, and it will ensure that when the Crocus have finished flowering, the Daffodils will continue the display.
“ The parish councillors want to thank residents and Staffordshire County Council for helping to ensure this project could take place. ”
