THE WESTBURY Garden Club has coordinated the planting of over 3,000 bulbs in May, at the eastern entrance to the town and beneath more than 200 street trees.

The Garden Club contributed $1000 for the purchase of bulbs, in addition to the many that were donated by the community.

A $3000 grant from Meander Valley Council and the involvement of the Council’s Works Department allowed the project to be expanded, complementing Council’s street tree plantings.

With donations and help from throughout the Westbury community, the bulbs will create an annual display that can only enhance Westbury’s considerable street appeal.
