Planting bulbs to share some love and joy


During October, the folk at Ilkeston Methodist Church have been busy planting bulbs to bring some cheerful colour for the people of Ilkeston to enjoy in early Spring next year.

Faced with the cancellation of many of the usual community events in the town due to the pandemic, the people at IMC realised that they needed to come up with new ideas for ways of sharing some love and joy with those who have had a tough time over the last few months. We challenged members to come up with ideas for ways to be involved with the community, many ideas were shared, yet on IMC Whatsapp the Bulb idea was springing into action with all using our skills, contacts and knowledge.

The bulb-planting took hold and by the end of the month, over twenty pots had been planted up safely, keeping to the rules on social distancing, and delivered with a message of support to an outdoor area at several care homes; Victoria Court, Oliver House and Hargreaves Court, the Museum and the United Reformed Church in Ilkeston.The hope is that Spring 2021 will bring plenty of colourful flowers to enjoy and even better, some hope of better times ahead.
