West Farleigh in Bloom


The Sunflower Competition is now closed and we have winners!


Holly French from The Hollow won the tallest sunflower competition with a flower that reached 2.74meters tall.


Gabby King won the Best Display sunflower competition with her sunflowers all growing up the telegraph pole outside her house.


Both won trophies to keep and commemorate their fantastic achievements. 

Thanks to all for entering.


August - Big Hotel, Bulb planting day and Results!

Posted on 29th August, 2018

Thank you to everyone in the village for their enthusiasm and support for our efforts so far, particularly the sunflower competition which attracted 30 household entries.  We want to keep up the momentum, and with some money in our bank account now thanks to your generosity for the walk and refreshment stops on Fathers Day, we have lots of ideas for next year.  Firstly we are going to buy lots of daffodil bulbs  to plant around the village for next spring.  We are having a planting day on Sunday 7 October and are targeting specific areas but also happy to supply bulbs for you to plant in your front gardens where they can be seen from the road. Watch this space for more details…


Jackie is going to attend the South East in Bloom Results Day in Brighton on 14 September to see how we have fared in our first year, and to have a sneaky peak at what our competitors are doing so we can be bigger and better next year!


One of our projects this year was to have a bug hotel built.  We are very excited to announce that the amazing bug hutch Tim Knowles has constructed for us has been placed on the triangle at the top of Teston Lane.  It has been built to specs mainly supplied by the R.S.P.B. It is all up cycled or reused material - bamboo tunnels to attract solitary bees and wasps,  plus two birds boxes, one either side and spaces for hedgehogs.


Your ideas to help enhance our beautiful village are always welcome.
