West Farleigh in Bloom

 

 

West Farleigh in Bloom

 

West Farleigh entered the Village category of South and South East in Bloom for the first time in 2018 and we received a Bronze certificate which we were all very pleased with.

 

In 2019 we have once again entered the Village cateogry and also the Churchyard category additionally. We look forward to a colourful year ahead (and hopefully Silver!)

 

2018 Sunflower competition Results

 

We ran 2 competitions throughout the village in 2018, inclusing tallest sunflower and best display:

 

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

 

Best Display sunflower competition was judged by Jon fenton, head gardener at Smiths Hall and Lifeline columnist. Gabby King won the with her sunflowers all growing up the telegraph pole outside her house.

 

Both won trophies to keep and commemorate their fantastic achievements.

June - Ramble with Refreshments - the Results!

Posted on 17th June, 2018

My goodness what a great day we had. With 4 refreshment stops around the village and walkers and cylists stopping off to see us we had alot of fun and raised an hugely impressive £227 for planting around the village. Our 'The Farleighs' Facebook events, Village email advertising and door to door mail dropped worked superbly!

 

There were cakes on the Green in the gazebo:
