A ray of sunshine for Tameside

Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh may have painted them but New Charter tenants are going to be planting them, sunflowers that is, and over 4,000 of them to bring a little ray of sunshine to gardens and schools across the region.

New Charter Homes has teamed up with Grobox, a local company based in Gee Cross, to supply tenants with their own sunflower pack in order to take part in New Charters 2012 ‘Grow the biggest Sunflower’ competition.

The competition is open to young and old, green fingered and non-green fingered, schools and communities. All the would-be gardeners have to do is plant the sunflower pack in the sunniest part of the garden, feed, water and tie it to a strong support and watch it grow.

Tony Powell, New Charter’s executive director of neighbourhoods said: “Every year our tenants astound us with their floral arrangements with an abundance of brilliant colours. This year we thought it would be fun to see who could grow the tallest or the widest headed sunflower.” Read more here.

What a great idea and I look forward to seeing these sunflowers throughout the borough. The company supplying the growing kits is a local Tameside company and they offer some great kits for growing at home. Take a look at the Grobox website to see what they have on offer and rest assured, their sunflower kits are guaranteed to contain non-racist sunflowers. Tameside Citizen

They're all hideously yellow and so must be genetically modified to manifest a broad range of colours. A society needs to reflect the imperatives of the fluid, dynamic economy it exists to serve...whoops... I mean, er, evict dissidents today.

Read this site reference and I bet you say "what the bloody hell is all this about",as you cough and splutter "where do we figure and
Where`s our Human Rights and our Charity organisation ??

This has really pissed me off 100%
when I read today
The Advertiser front page refers to a seriously disabled Ashton youngster and the Secret Millionaire who is funding him
because of his dire circumstances.
Notice all the administrators of this Charity,and who at TMBC gets the benefit of Votes.
Some rights RW got compared with this group of individuals who are obviously fireproof in Tameside.
Our Lord Jesus Christ and his followers are on the back burner in Tameside,so its time Christians had their own Charity in Tameside.

Interesting connection between the woman who runs this business, a PR company and New Charter.

What a coincidence.

The cat is out of the bag even more
with this posted info above,
in that Tameside Council will halt your Human Rights if you are white.
but pander to you if you are otherwise.
This is mass discrimination directed specifically at white born British subjects,because TMBC prefers without any doubt to show bias to those not Christian,Catholic Methodist,etc etc etc.
A withold Council Taxes organisation needs setting up right now,200,000 cannot fit in one cell.

So this is the picture taken of Tameside Council to commence the new
selected Council.

You need to go to Spec-Savers immediately to view this absolute stupid photograph.
Just looks like a bunch of criminals trying to hide their identities.

SueCarrTweets: Coun Quinn says election results were resounding endorsement of Tameside's Labour council. [via Twitter]

What with 72% of the Electorate not wanting a Labour dominated Council.
Thats statement a serious sign of looming dementia

This is your destiny on this corrupt and vile planet.
Yet there are more of us than them.
Perhaps a decent World Dictator who can rid us of all these bastards will emerge one day and perform a cull of the despots

A 'World Dictator' performing a 'cull of the despots' y'say?

Sounds like a suicide mission...
