We have tidied the Veg beds today and put in some celeriac and leeks. It'll be a while before these are ready, meanwhile over the next few weeks there will still be some runner beans coming along, lots of tomatoes will ripen soon and you can help yourself to herbs.
FREE FRESH VEGETABLES AVAILABLE from the edible garden at St Peter and St john church. Ready to pick now:runner, french and broad beans, spinach, beetroot, lettuce and tomatoes.
LOOK! We are in this week's Observer - lovely story and picture of our beds.
We hosted the National Britain in Bloom judges for lunch on August 4th. Well done everyone who helped. You can see the image better if you look it up
Next Weds 17th August at 2pm - come along and join us as we tidy up the beds and do some planning for our next plantings and sessions together
Some of our 8 o'clockers enjoyed a visit to Betty who moved away in March to live nearer to her daughter. Sheila took Pat, Janet and Minnie over and we enjoyed coffee and lunch together. Wonderful to see Betty again - she's wondefully funny and seems to have settled in really well. Thank you for lunch and the biscuits, Betty.
Thank you everyone for your hard work completing the Choir Vestry 'make-over'.
Started in July by a group of young people from 'The Challenge' who got a lot of the painting underway, we have since had several working parties to complete the painting.
Yesterday, August 8th, a new carpet went in and the new curtains went up, both made possible by very kind donations from church members.
We also got the entrance hall painted (another coat still needed, hopefully done later this month) and the toilet by the back door.
The idea behind this makeover is to create a more pleasant environment for course to be held such as the Life Course as well as for the regular services and meetings for which we use the room.
Just a bit of more clearing up and putting stuff back in place and we'll be all done. Fab job everyone.
