Seedling and Plant Swap

A big thank-you to everyone who took part last month.

For my part I came away with more than I brought! The Swap is back again this month and on June 2nd, both during the village

lunch – staying for lunch is always a pleasure but is not obligatory!

There are many expert growers in and around our village, so please feel free to come and ask for advice – or offer some – its always handy to compare notes.

Also, please use the newsletter if you have any questions or something you think could be of interest to the village, it doesn’t have to be about gardening!

A Talk by Laura Martin on ’The Escapades of the Ferguson Gang’

HELP!!!!  Would anyone like to join in?

We need a few more friendly, happy people to join in with the organisation of village events and helping to run the hall.

Those of us currently involved get a lot of pleasure out of the things we do, but are now short handed.

A rare glimpse into the relationship between author A.A. Milne, creator of the beloved Winnie- the-Pooh stories and his young son Christopher Robin and the effect the trenches and battlefields of the Great War had upon the author.
