March Street Pride Group

The group meet on the last Tuesday of every month. If you would like to attend, meet at George Campbell Leisure Centre at 10.00am

The group also enter the Anglia in Bloom competition. In 2016, the group were awarded a Silver Gilt.

The group plant up hanging baskets, trough and barrels throughout the town during summer and winter.  Without the support of other organisations, such as March Town Council, Delfland Nurseries and FACET, to name a few, and residents this would not be possible as these items are funded through donations.

Past projects include maintaining Grays Lane, floral features, litter picking and painting at March Freezer Centre.

The group hold fund raising events at the St Georges Fair, Christmas Market and street collections.

In 2013 the group worked with the manager of West End DIY store to improve the front entrance. The probation team helped to clear the overgrown shrubbery and the group planted up new flowers and shrubs to create an attractive area for visitors to the store and passerby's to appreciate.

The group and Fenland District Council's Street Pride Co-ordinator have worked with pupils from All Saints Academy in the past on various projects. They have helped prepare the allotment area ready for planting and the pond has had a spring clean.

In 2015, at the annual celebration evening the group won Best Street Scene Project in partnership with the March History Group for their enhancement project to the shelter by Grays Lane and photo montage.

In 2016, the group followed this up by winning the Best Partnership Project for the work they have completed by the library. A sensory garden has been created along with a flower bed to match existing beds here. The group worked in partnership with a number of partners, such as FDC, FACET and Delfland Nurseries.

In 2017, the group won Best Street Scene Project for their enhancement project to land opposite West End DIY store.
