POP UP SHOP  Sunday 22nd September
Hazel’s Florists, High Street, Bishop’s Waltham

On Sunday 22nd September, world car free day, we opened a pop up shop in Hazel’s Florists.This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is YB28-943x1024.jpg
The shop had closed as a florist in May and so the premises were empty, an ideal place for us to use.
Many of our yarn bombing creatures now have new homes and can be appreciated by people old and young. 
We also had a sale table which included some bird boxes made for us by the Men’s Shed using wood from the original shop.
There were some free children’s activities, the most popular being make your own gift tags.
Thank you to everyone who came, mainly in the afternoon and helped us raise £130 towards out running costs.

HIDDEN GARDENS
Sunday 30th June

Over 650 visitors wandered around Bishop’s Waltham to look behind those anonymous garden gates. The gardens varied so much, from tiny courtyards to large open spaces; attached to new build houses and to medieval ones; recently established to ones that have been planted for hundreds of years.  Many had bright flowers, shrubs, climbers, open spaces, seats to rest on, shade, sunny spots.
A huge thank you must go to the 12 gardens who opened their gates from 11.00 – 5.00.
