Our aim

Our aim is to enhance the appearance of Lower Bourne Village centre along the A287.  Along with The Bourne Conservation Group we met local shop and business owners to plan a scheme to revitalise and improve the appearace of this area by introducing hanging baskets and planted tubs outside the shops and on neighbouring properties.  We have also endeavoured to make uniform all the litter bins and posts around the crossroads.

The new village signs are now in place and of course the lovely new flower bed at the crossroads.

 Anyone willing to become involved in working with us  - watering and keeping litter under control please contact Val Nye on  01252 714009 or bourneresidents@hotmail.co.uk.

Pansies, ivies and spring bulbs have been planted in only the tubs and large planter. The hanging baskets will be replanted in the spring.

At Christmas 2018 we again added a bit of Christmas festive lighting by illuminating the five tubs under the notice board, the notice board itself and the two tubs by the bench.

In 2019 we will continue to keep the area around from the crossroads from the Vets to the Hairdressers free from litter to the best of our ability. Due to the increased traffic this is proving difficult.

We also help with the litter picking and maintenance of Langhams Recreation Ground and work closely with Surrey County Copuncil in improving the Bourne Green for users.

None of this would be possible without the ongoing  involvement of our local community which has been bought together by The Bourne Residents' Association & Bourne Conservation Group.
