Bill sows seeds for floral street
PUTTING the pride back into his Gloucester street, 72-year-old Bill Crooke's on-street seed planting mission has been heralded a blooming success.
Mr Crooke, a security officer, planted seeds on a verge near to his Mount Street home.
Mr Crooke said: "I landscaped it for the council but then trucks working on the Westgate car park passed by and turned it into an unsightly tip for the public to see.
"The contractors Morgan-Sindall agreed to put it right and two tonnes of rubbish were taken away.

"I wanted to do something about it because I'm proud of where I live and I want the street to look decent.
"The meadow seeds were planted and it is growing like hell."
Gloucester city councillor Paul Toleman (Con. Westgate) said: "This is a fine example of a city resident who not only takes pride in his own garden and land, but also is concerned about the land outside his property.
"Nice one Bill."
