The 1st Battle Rainbows celebrated it’s tenth anniversary of planting the Rainbow flower bed in Market Square, Battle.

Leader of the 1st Battle Rainbows, Deborah Latter said it’s been a brilliant ten years. “Our first planting was in June 2005 and was a rainbow of flowers, the same this year,” she said. “In summer we have had different themes. We also plant in Autumn for a Spring showing of gorgeous polyanthus. Our plants are supplied by Tim Gowland at Great Park Farm Nursery and we are sponsored by Trevor Henning.”

This year ten Rainbows, Leaders Violet and Pink, Helpers Ruby and Bronze, helper Khaki and son Olive, planted 7 rows of flowers in the shape and colours of the rainbow.
