Annual BBQ and Prize Giving
Despite heavy rain during the morning and early part of the afternoon on Sunday 8th August, we made the decision to go ahead with our BBQ and Prize Giving. We placed the tables on the area immediately outside the Cricket Pavillion and erected gazebos to cover them to keep everyone dry should it rain, which it did!!!
Due to Covid restrictions we offered table service rather than a help yourself buffet and this worked well. Everyone seemed very happy with the afternoon and we have received many complimentary messages.
Prizes were awarded for entries into our Annual Floral Competition.
This was judged by photographic entry again this year. We are very grateful to our judges, Paul and Hazel Woodman for their efforts. Both acknowledged that it is not easy to judge gardens and streets by photographs alone.

Wild flower gallery
After all our hard work with the preparation of our sites on Tangier Lane and the roundabout on Hoe Road (see below) we have finally been rewarded with a spectacular display of flowers
There are a wide variety of individual flowers.
These can be seen by clicking the link to a gallery of all the different flowers.

As you will see the bees and the butterflies are already enjoying the flowers.
We took great care in the preparation of the ground in April as we were not happy with the displays in the last two years. Parts of the Tangier Lane site were dug manually to remove as many weeds as possible, the rest of the area was weed-killed and then rotovated.
The roundabout on Hoe Road was weed-killed and rotovated.
We are very grateful to the businesses and individuals who have sponsored our hanging baskets, planters and flower beds this year.

Teddy Bears Picnic and Mischievous Teddies
As part of the yarn bombing of Bishop’s Waltham we have created a Teddy Bears Picnic around the Clock bed in St George’s Square.
In Red Lion Street we have some teddy bears behaving badly and some having fun.
