The Gardening Club held its plant sale under very different conditions this year. There was huge pent-up demand in the village, especially for vegetables as well as for bedding plants to decorate the War Memorial. However, due to social-distancing requirements, we could not hold our usual stalls in Sybil’s garden. A list was sent out, orders taken and plants collected or delivered while ‘keeping to the rules’.

As the weather had been so good our growers had excelled themselves. We raised the magnificent sum of £285 to send to Bridewell Organic Garden to help with its work in mental health and a further £355 went to local food banks.

The committee has cancelled the walk round village gardens due to take place this month but hopes to be able to do it in September instead.
