Village In Bloom
Spring Judging is scheduled for Monday 8 April. Judges Sue Wood, from Harrogate, and Elizabeth Levett, from York, are due to do their tour of the village between 2pm and 3.30pm that afternoon.
The tour will start from and finish at the Sports and Recreation Centre in Rotsea Lane, Hutton. Daffodils and other spring bulbs are all waiting for some warmth to encourage the buds to open – let’s hope that by the beginning of April spring sunshine will be here and we’ll have swathes of golden daffodils to welcome the judges.
The spring garden competition, Brightest and Best, will be judged during the week beginning 2 April.
If you have a specimen plant or attractive area that is not visible from the road, please contact Margaret Jenkins on 01377 271191.
The Britain in Bloom judges were very complimentary about the ‘high standard’ of private gardens they saw on their tour last year. Thank you to everyone who contributes to the tidiness and attractiveness of our local area.
Lunch is available every Thursday until Easter at the WI Hall from noon to 1pm.
Lunch will be soup with bread and cheese. There is no cost but a donation for Christian Aid would be appreciated.
If anyone would like to make a donation in memory of a loved one towards the cost of Easter lillies at St Peter’s Church, please speak to Kathrine Adams.
The church will be open between 9.30am and 11.30am on Saturday 30 March for the purpose of decorating – anyone who wishes to help would be very welcome.
