What can you do to help? 

We’ve have a wonderful response to our appeal for knitted, crotcheted and fabric flowers – but there’s still room for more. In addition to the cascade from the church tower, we hope to decorate the bridge and field gates. 

Join our sewing team. Those flowers aren’t getting to get on the net we are using by themselves! Watch out for the dates, on village notice boards and the community Facebook page.  

Plant some flowers in tubs and troughs outside your house, so everyone will see what a blooming marvellous village we have!
