The White Lion Walk shopping centre in Guildford  has donated £1,000 to Guildford In Bloom as part of its on-going commitment to nature in the town.

The money will enable all the hard working volunteers to run the annual competition and will also go towards the costs of the hanging baskets, troughs and flower beds provided by the borough council.

Cllr Powell added: “We are all aware that Guildford benefits from all the beautiful flowers. We are delighted that White Lion Walk has enabled us to continue with these displays and give them a heartfelt thank you.”

Steve Cotney, the centre manager of White Lion Walk, said: “We may be just a shopping centre to some, but we always strive to support others in the town to continue to ensure that Guildford is always renowned as a wonderful destination. We are fully committed to helping nature and wildlife, not simply with our own campaigns such as our bee apiary and environmental policies but also to helping others such as Guildford in Bloom.”
