2018's Plant Sale was Mega in all ways.
Three days of glorious sunshine. Thousands of beautiful plants. Hundreds of buyers. Emergency cake baking. Flowers arranged. Ice creams consumed. Teas drunk. Art appreciated and purchased. Tombolas spun and prizes won.
Volunteers from within the Village and further afield giving their time to ensure everyone enjoyed themselves and had no reason not to exceed their proposed spending limit.
And spend they did. The final amount raised was an amazing £10,750 — a record!!!
Many thanks to everyone who helped in any way.
