Hidden Gardens 2022
The date has been set as Sunday 10th July, with gardens open from 11.00 until 5.00.
We already have 8 gardens who are committed to opening but are looking for a few more. 3 of the gardens that will be opening are new gardens and 3 gardens will be serving refreshments of some kind.
What makes a Hidden Garden?
An unexpected layout
Colourful plants, both flowers and foliage
Unusual plants, perhaps from foreign countries
Places to sit and contemplate
High walls that suggest secrets within
Maybe views of the surrounding are
……..and much, much more
A hidden garden can be large or small
shady or sunny
have a pond, summer house, terrace
lawns, flower beds, shrubs, wildlife
vegetable patches and/or greenhouses
the only stipulation is that access to the garden must not be through your house.

Soup and Sizzling Sausages
Thursday 2nd December High Street Bishop’s Waltham
Thank you to everyone who visited our stall at the beginning of December. It was good to be part of this village event once again.
We raised over £300 towards our running costs for 2022
Annual Quiz Night 2022
Friday 28th January Jubilee Hall 7.00 for 7.30
Sadly we decided on 12th January to cancel our Quiz Night.
Since then the government have said that most restrictions will probably be lifted on 26th January.
It would have been a relaxed evening with teams working together, in whispers, to answer a series of questions on a variety of themes. Once the decision was made we contacted all those who had reserved tables to explain our reasons. Most could appreciate our reasons.
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.
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.
