Decorative Flower Troughs

Why is it that Eaton Bray does not have a Flower Trough. Driving through Edlesborough, Northall, Dagnall,Kensworth, all have lovely displays is Eaton Bray too mean or too poor to pay what is required.
Unless my memory is playing tricks  there was one tempoarily sited on the grassed area near Knights Close  then it disappered?
Anyone have any answers?

As far as I am aware, the troughs in Dagnall, Edlesborough and Northhall part AVDC sponsored and part sponsored by local businesses who pay for the plants etc. this has taken a lot of organisation by a group of local parishoners essentially volunteers who have formed action teams one of which is the'' EDaN beautification of the villages project'' They were also responsible for organising a May Day Celebration on Edlesborough Green and a beautiful personalised Villiage sign which was erected on the green at the same time.

What's wrong with Eaton Bray doing the same, I'm sure it's not to hard, just like minded getting together.
