Curry Rivel In Bloom May 2018
There is a lot happening this month and hopefully it will stop raining and we can begin to plant up the new permanent War Memorial garden.
Thank you to Marian Dale of Summerdale Garden Design who has helped us refine the design and has sourced plants for the garden. We are hoping that a new water pipe will soon be installed to assist with watering.
A new design for the Twinning Area has been proposed and Sue Hand and Pat Cilia will be planting this up soon. If you have any local stone lying around your garden that you no longer need please let us know, as part of the design will be a rockery.
Don't forget the Plant Sale on Sunday 13th May at 10.00 am in the village centre behind the old butcher's shop. Refreshments are available. Plants in this year's colours of white, pink and blue will be available.
Front Garden / Frontage Competition
We would still like more entries for this competition, please join in if you can. If you would like to enter please contact Gina on 01458 762296 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your details. You don't need to be present for the judging which will take place between 23rd — 30th June.
The Tea Party & Quiz that was organised for Sunday 7th May has had to be postponed due to clashes with other events taking place, we hope to reorganise this for later in the year, possibly September.
We have taken on part of an allotment and hope to build some raised beds and lower beds, so we are urgently looking for any donations of wood that we could use for this please. We are making the beds 8'x4' for easy access.
We are also looking for any donations of a shed 6'x4', any soil, compost, tools, pallets, bean poles, in fact anything that you think might be useful for this project.
We hope to be working with groups in the village such as the Brownies and Guides and other groups who would like to grow any vegetables here. We are also building compost bins for recycling and producing our own soil. The allotment will be designed to give disabled access. Please contact us if you could help at all with building beds or digging, that would be wonderful.
Any help is always gratefully received no matter how small.
Look out for lots of planting happening around the village in the next few weeks and months, we hope that you will be able to join in with Curry Rivel's entry into South West in Bloom, with lots of pots and troughs and plants on display. Just as this goes to press we have a judging day of Thursday 12th July.
