Decorating Our Village

Why not help us to decorate our Village, have a go at crocheting, knitting or making felt red, white and blue 3" (approx) flowers. Listed below are links to easy YouTube tutorials but feel free to make your own:

The flowers are needed by the 22nd May and can be dropped off at: the Village Show - Teas, plant, cake and book stall or at Christine Grandidge, Southdown, Main Street. You will be able to collect your flowers after the weekend's festivities.

Thank you and happy creating

The Queen's Green Canopy

A magnolia tree "Royal Star" has been purchased by the Parish Council and has been planted in Windy Spire Pocket Park.

The tree is dedicated to The Queen's Green Canopy.
