Spring! and THE FAIR!!

Hi everyone

Hope you’ve been having a lovely spring!  It’s a great time to be in the garden  We’ve some great dry Wednesdays, and the volunteers have got a lot done and everything is looking great.  The new raised beds the on farside are finished and fantastic, everything is getting planted out and lots has been fixed, tidied, painted, planted and labelled ready for the new season and ready to have YOU along to our Big Spring Fair next week!

It’s our first spring fair and big fundraiser in 3 years so I hope you can make it!  It’s  1pm-4pm Saturday 14th May and you can expect live music, choirs and morris dancing, loads of free activities for children AND grown ups, a lovely big plant sale, delicious pizza fresh from the oven and cakes and a great time.  There’ll be an indoor quiet sensory play space and our site and toilet are wheelchair accessible.  So please come along and tell your friends!

The entry price is tiered adults £4/£2, children £2/£1 or just come along and pay what you can! And we don’t have a card machines so please bring cash and if you brought your own cup as well that’d be grand.

And if you have any spare plants to donate – FAB! or if you can bake us a cake that’d be brilliant!  Or if you have any time to help on the day you’d be very very welcome. Just let me know 🙂

AND our new pond is an absolute beaut!  You can cone and admire it at the fair.  We are all in love with it – also so are all the local birds! On Tuesday I counted 7 in there at once from a fledgling blackbird to a long tail tit, all enjoying a flappy bath and a drink. Sometime the crows pop down for a good dunk  – in and out and up in a tree to shake off and have a good preen.  The tadpoles are long gone but hey ho – turns out the wildlife had a different plan.

See you in the garden!
