Let's Bee Friendly - More Details

We have now kicked this project off formally with announcements on various social media sites. Interest and enthusiasm are growing which is wonderful to see.

The Small Print

To provide some clarity over the scheme - here are the details of the scheme in no particular order.

  1. Each Cookham Rise resident is welcome to request ONE £5.00 off voucher to be applied to selected collections of Bee Friendly Plants (each collection to cost £11.00 - or £6.00 with the voucher).
  2. The scheme is limited to individual households in Cookham Rise.
  3. There are 100 vouchers available. As they say, when they are gone, they are gone.
  4. Each voucher can only be applied on the specially selected collections of plants which will be specially marked at the plant sale. We' love you to buy other bee-friendly plants and you are welcome to buy more sets of our collections at the bargain price of £11.00.
  5. Application for vouchers is via an online form on our Facebook page. We'll post this more widely in Feb.
  6. We prefer to see the plants planted in front of your houses so everyone can join the bees in enjoying the plantings.
  7. The vouchers are to be delivered starting on the 9th of March.
  8. The vouchers are to be used at the plant sales on Sunday 21/22 March and Sunday 28/29 March only.
  9. You must present the voucher to claim your discount.
  10. Applications for vouchers closes as of 23 March 2020 - or whenever we reach our target of 100 vouchers. 
  11. When you apply, we need you to allow us to hold your contact information and whether we are allowed to pass this information on to other Wild Cookham projects.  We'll need your permission for the former in order to issue and deliver the vouchers. We'd like to let other Wild Cookham projects contact you and invite you to Wild Cookham events. 
We'd love to do more but have limited funds. If this is successful and if we can find more benefactors, we'd love to expand this scheme next year to encompass ALL of Cookham.

Most Innovative Planting Award
For a bit of added fun - We're offering a prize for the most innovative planting of these plants. We'll ask you to submit a couple of pictures and details. We'll award the prize in the autumn, as part of the Wild About Gardens award event. More details on the prize are to be posted soon.
