Volunteers planted hundreds of flowers around Ulverston yesterday (May 22) during the heavy rain fall. 

The planters were from Incredible Edible Ulverston, Ulverston in Bloom and Gill Banks Action Group.

And although the rain may be good for the flowers, volunteers were soaked as they set about planting at bus stops, along the A590 and at Coronation Hall.
