It’s a blooming great welcome back!
Businesses and organisations throughout Newport town centre are gearing up for a re-opening in the coming weeks and welcoming customers and visitors back. Part of that preparation is to make Newport town centre as blooming colourful as possible. Newport Business Association has teamed up with Care In The Garden to get the good vibes going.
The initiative, titled Blooming Well Together In Newport, is to invite businesses and organisations to display a hanging basket, supplied and even fitted as needed by Care In The Garden. All the baskets will be following a blue, yellow and white colour scheme. These are very much Newport FC colours, but also connect with the NHS (blue and white) and a feeling of positivity (yellow).
John Goodenough from Care In The Garden comments: “We are delighted to be involved in this project and a chance to bring joy to people visiting Newport town centre. We’ve priced the baskets very modestly at just £25 or for just £10 more we’ll even fit it for you!“
To add more colour, several primary schools across Newport have also been involved in drawing and colouring their flowers. This artwork will be displayed in shop windows throughout the town.
Co-ordinating this whole initiative is NBA member Fiona Brown, who owns The Dapper Chap on Upper St James Street.
If you are a Newport business or organisation, then please get involved in this initiative and help to make this the warmest welcome back for customers and visitors.
