On Wednesday, July 12th. the judges will be in the village between 10-12am.
Latest from Sylvia Goodenough. All villagers are invited to attend the presentation to the South West in Bloom judges in the Village Hall on Wed 12 July at 10 am There will be tea, coffee and cake available and a chance to see photographs of the work that has been done. Starting very promptly at 10 as we have to keep to a very tight schedule for the judges. Everyone welcome!
Thanks very much
Congratulations to those organising and heavily involved with CRiB, the planting looks great, especially at the War Memorial, on the High Street walls and elsewhere around the village. A big thank you is owed to all who have planted up tubs and baskets in front of their houses and are now looking after them in this hot spell.
There is some clearing up to be done before the day. In particular, the area between the Bell and the King William needs to be worked on — the judges will be looking at verges and curbs, noting weeds and accumulated debris — so everybody should try to litter pick, weed and do a sweep up in that area just before 12th.
There will not be a result on the day but news will come through soon. The medals range from gold, through silver gilt and silver to bronze.
