Behind the Scenes at the Autumn Show - 'The Judging' our thanks to Peter Searight of 'The Remarkable Studio' for taking these photographs for us.
Update on planting for Fernhurst
The area on the corner of The Leys: The Leys corner has also been an enjoyable project, our lovely seat was unveiled on Friday 30 July and now just waiting for better weather so all can enjoy sitting and watching the 'Fernhurst' world go by. The site of the seat has been altered slightly, having listened to the concerns about mobility accessibility from some local folk.
The raised bed on the corner of Vann Road, opposite Crossways Fruiterers: The raised bed opposite our wonderful vegetable shop has continued to keep us occupied and is taking great shape. We have enjoyed hearing peoples compliments whilst there. I think you will agree that it will only get better as the plants establish themselves. Blackdown Publishers very kindly allowed us to place two water butts from their downpipe to collect rainfall to keep our plants watered, as this becomes necessary after such a wet May!
A very big thank you to everyone who made our plant stall such a success at the Revels .So many beautiful plants brought along to sell. The stall looked full and colourful .
Thank you to Dominic Kennedy for masterminding the snail racing game too.
It is a big team effort , so again thanks to everyone from plant providers, stall setting up, sellers and most importantly plant buyers. A profit of around £450 made.
Looking ahead to Autumn and a cha\nge from our scheduled talk - In November Amy Murphy Watts, will talk to us about her Flower Essences and how she makes them and her flower/herbal teas.
