Our entry for the South West in Bloom 2018 competition for the Cox Cup has been submitted and as the weather improves we will be setting about turning our village into another brilliant display of troughs, pots and hanging baskets. South West in Bloom is not just all about having beautiful floral displays though. The main areas that the judges concentrate on are Horticultural Achievement, Environmental Responsibility & Community Participation Although we do well on the first category we really need more help with the second two, especially Community participation. If you can offer your help in anyway no matter how small, with planting, watering, dead heading or anything else, please do get in touch. 01458 762296 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Thank You!
Thank you too to Marian Dale a professional garden designer who has given us her time for free to help finalise the permanent design which was presented at the last CRIB meeting in the village hall on 27th February.
Thank you too, to all those who turned out to help on Sat 17th Feb for our composting day at the war memorial, thank you to those who have donated compost, their time and effort, we even had a financial donation to buy soil improver. A great community effort.
