From hanging baskets overflowing with flowers, to planters of all shapes and sizes, Weymouth is an abundance of colour this summer. We Are Weymouth (BID), working in partnership with Weymouth Town Council, has worked tirelessly to plant and hang these beautiful baskets and boats throughout the town.
Planting begins in January for the hanging baskets, ensuring that flowers are in bloom for the summer months. BID levy payers apply for baskets for their premises and with over 150 throughout the town these beautiful arrangements improve the experience for visitors and locals to the town centre.
New in 2022, We Are Weymouth and Weymouth Town Council introduced boat planters on the harbourside and by The Palm House. Extending the reach of the floral displays and improving the look and feel of the town has been a key element of We Are Weymouth’s ‘Improve’ mission. These planters have been refreshed for 2023 and are now permanent installations.
Dawn Rondeau, We Are Weymouth’s Chief Operations Officer comments: “At We Are Weymouth we are committed to our role in ‘improving’ the town, whether this is working to remove graffiti, providing hanging baskets or pioneering the Heritage and Mural Arts Trails. We want to make Weymouth a welcoming and exciting place to visit and we’re very proud of how beautiful these hanging baskets look. Weymouth during these spring and summer months is truly a special place to be and we hope that locals and visitors can see all the work that’s gone into the town and feel as proud as we do.”
After a day wandering through Weymouth, why not stop for dinner in one of the town’s award-winning restaurants or head to one of many live music menus. Don’t forget a cocktail or glass of wine on the seafront admiring the Bay. You’ll find plenty of information on what to see and do here on Love-Weymouth.co.uk or head on over to weareweymouth.co.uk
