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!

Future Plans - We are hoping that we will be able to go ahead with our Autumn Show this year on Saturday 11 September.  We will keep evryone updated of any changes or restrictions as time goes on.  All being well, the Revels will also be taking place on the Bank Holiday Monday on the 30 August and we shall hold our popular Plant Stall so please do bear us in mind if you are splitting plants, taking cuttings or propagating.  More details on these two events to follow.
Looking ahead to Autumn - Thursday 7th October we should be having a talk on Dahlias For Pleasure by Brian Madders. Obviously we would love to get back to talks in the village Hall. But Covid restrictions may still be necessary so it would therefore be on Zoom.
