How the planting started
In early 2012, inspired by the snowdrop idea, Mayor Tim Cook celebrated his Civic Day by inviting dignitaries from around the county to plant the first bulbs in the grounds of the Trinity Centre, a deconsecrated church and the landmark tower you see in our logo.
Phase two then followed, with annual public plantings taking place to create an expanding series of walks to enhance this renowned scenic town. We have, to date, planted over 200,000 snowdrops and intend to continue the programme of planting.
