Billingshurst High Street Hanging Baskets As part of our South & South East in Bloom entry preparations, hanging baskets were erected on six of the Billingshurst High Street lampposts. We are delighted at how many residents have taken the time to comment and pass on their delight at once again seeing baskets back in the village centre. The Council is in the process of renewing its garden contract for the next three years and plans to have baskets up every summer.
Cherry Tree Walk
Lloyds Bank Mobile Unit
Village watchers may have noticed three Rowan trees have been removed from the verge on the north side of the High Street. Whilst we all love trees, these were looking very tatty and unshapely and are being replaced this autumn with new Cherry Trees, to accompany the remaining two. This will go some way to help recreate the much-loved but long-forgotten Cherry Tree Walk, planted in the 1930s. This should help make this part of the High Street look more attractive. Thanks to Billingshurst Local History Group for finding this photo (below) of the Cherry Tree Walk in all its past glory.
