Tree Planting Day 4th March 2017- a wonderful and uplifting day!

 It was lovely to see so many families and friends attending this year – I was just sorry that I was unable to spend more time with everyone. I seemed to be running from pillar to post with Bella (the little dachshund) in tow.

We were blessed with sunshine in the afternoon, making tree planting by both young and old (older!) a really special occasion.
Unfortunately as I was rushing around trying to see everyone I was unable to take any photos so I only have a couple to post.
Finally, I look forward to seeing some of you at our next event -spring wreath making and wild bulb planting on the 22nd April 2017.
Tree Planting day photo and a few recent photos of Deerton are posted below – Spring has definitely Sprung

img_0895Our “trial” Wreath Making Event proved to be a success despite the awful weather on Saturday. We erected a canopy the night before to provide shelter which just about remained in place depite the terential rain and wind!!

All who were able to brave the weather were treated to homemade cakes, scones, tea and coffee before being guided through the steps in making their own wreath from locally sourced follage ( by both Rebecca and myself).

Thank you to you all for your support .. I promise there will be no more “tepid tea”!!.

Due to the comments of appreciation made we will be arranging a Spring Wreath Making and Spring cleaning Event in (you’ve guessed it !!) the Spring, so watch this website for more details. We are hoping that some of you may want to volunteer a few hours in the morning or afternoon of the Event to help with serving Tea and Coffee and a friendly face; please forward your contact details if you wish and are able to spare us a few hours on these Event days.

I have posted a few photos showing our Wreath Making activities. We welcome any suggestions or comments.
