Our Flower Show on Saturday 3rd August is fast approaching. The growing season may be late, but we are still hoping for a good display of vegetables and flowers from our keen gardeners. Hopefully our keen cooks will be trying out the recipes and our artists and craftspeople will be working hard at their exhibits.

Spare schedules are available too.

And finally:-

According to the Project Britain website:-

“July is one of the hottest months of the year” – I hope they are right this year :-)


–If the first of July it be rainy weather,
Twill rain more or less for four weeks together’ – Oh dear! ;-(

However we can look forward to various events:-

These including Henley Royal Regatta, Swan Upping (the annual census on the River Thames when swans are counted & marked on a 70 mile, 5 day journey up the river) and Honiton Fair in Devon

I’m choosing to ignore the 15th – St Swithin’s Day – enough has been said about the weather!!
