Sponsor a hanging basket
How the baskets are funded
The hanging baskets are funded through the cooperation of local businesses who pay a per basket fee of $40 (plus gst) each season. For baskets outside the CBD the cost is $120 (plus GST).
These fees account for approximately 25% of the total programme costs. The remainder comes from the Council with a portion of the budget raised from parking meter revenue in the CBD.
The Council would like to say a special thanks to all the businesses who so willingly support the beautification of Nelson by funding the hanging baskets. Your investment is helping create a lasting positive impression of our vibrant city for locals and visitors.
