A GROUP of green-fingered Sewerby residents braved the misty weather to plant a patch of land with bulbs ready for spring.

Reg Harrison, of the Sewerby Village Resident’s Association, organised a gardening team and dug 51 trenches into which daffodil bulbs were planted on Tuesday October 23.

School pupils from Martongate Primary School helped put in two bags of bulbs, with four bags in total planted into a patch of land between the model village and railway crossing, Sewerby.

Bridlington Town Crier, David Hinde, made an appearance to mark the occasion and taught the children about the history behind the role of crier.

Wendy Harrison, a member of Sewerby Village Resident’s Association, said: “It went really well the children were ever so thrilled with the town crier. The children were a big help and they did a very nice job with planting the bulbs.”
