"I am delighted to welcome this scheme from Instaplanta to provide free planters within the Barnsley area. This partnership has given us a wonderful opportunity to improve our environment. In spite of cuts in budgets, this innovative project helps us to continue working with our communities and local businesses in improving our areas adding a wonderful splash of floral colour at no cost to the council and help increase community pride and further support our In Bloom and Love Where you Live Initiatives."

This scheme is fantastic, not only does it support the work that Beeston in Bloom does at no cost to the group but also supports wider council aspirations of improving economic growth, community cohesion and sustainable environmental improvements.
This scheme is a great endorsement of how voluntary, public and private sectors can work together to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes for the communities they serve.”
