Green hearts celebration in New Mills

Artwork from pupils at New Mills School.

Green hearts will be springing up in New Mills to mark Valentine's weekend. 

Following last year’s success, the ‘Show the love’ celebration complete with a green heart trail is being organised again by New Mills Festival with everyone invited to get involved. 

It was local artist and festival volunteer Deborah Pitman who suggested the town to link in with the UK-wide “Show the Love” initiative organised by the Climate Coalition and was delighted with the response and is encouraging people to take part.  

She said: “The displays last year were beautiful individual expressions of love for the green spaces around us and our green planet.  

“We dressed windows, doors, walls and gardens, all looking stunning. Let’s create some magic again this year!” 

Festival Director and Home Farm Project Manager Toby Hardwick said: “The #ShowTheLoveNewMills green heart trail is another way of coming together to celebrate the fantastic New Mills community spirt.  

“Our ‘growing local’ Home Farm New Mills project is in to its second year now and encourages more of us to connect with the seasons and the soil. This year we’re offering wildflower seeds too, so heart-shaped planting could be a great option.”
