Communities in Bloom: 4 Blooms and Special Mention

Congratulations to the Motherwell Walking Trail Committee and all the other groups, including our Parks people, for vision and hard work in garnering a 4 Bloom Award and Special Mention. The Special Mention is for the Motherwell Walking Trail. Here is what the judges wrote:

“If it takes a village to raise a child, in Kindersely, it takes a community to build a walking trail. Created through the fundraising efforts of the Walking Trail Committee, the 4.2 kilometre Community Walking Trail that links the town to the Motherwell Reservoir is an achievement the townspeople can be proud of. The paved trail skirts the wildflower-filled edges of the former town reservoir, and is a popular place for walkers, joggers, in-line skaters and even birdwatchers. Not content to rest on their accomplishments, the Committee is planning to install a solar-powered aerator, and working with the Kindersley Wildlife Federation, it plans to re-stock the aerated waters with perch”.
