Creating Madelaines Rose Garden 2

Summer Planting
By now the village should be planted up and looking fabulous for the summer.

Thank you to all those who have helped with securing the new planters and pots, planting them up and to those who have volunteered to water and dead head them through the coming months. So much goes on behind the scenes, so thank you to all our lovely volunteers, it wouldn't happen without you.

Granny's Garden
You will also see some changes at Granny's Garden. We are creating a rose garden in memory of Madelaine King-Oakley and two of our volunteers, Pat & Sue are creating a ground cover garden on the bank at the south end of the garden.

A huge thank you to Annette who did the first cut of the year and to Geoff, Annette and others who will cut the grass this summer. We have had donations from the village hall, and the WI towards this and hope there are more to come.

Front Garden Competition 2019
We are now open to entries for this year's front garden competition. Last year we had 22 entries, so if you entered last year, we hope you will do so again and we hope for new entries too. This year there is no colour scheme just a riot of colour.
