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!)

April: Guardians of the Churchyard

Posted on 29th November, 2019

Guardians of the Churchyard 

 

Keeping a churchyard tidy is hard work. Think of the uneven ground, the gravestones and the trees. And there are lots of corners. So next time you are passing, stop by All Saints churchyard and admire the work of Martyn Jones and his assistants. The Village in Bloom committee was so impressed, they decided to have a go at the special “Churchyard of the Year” award this year.

 

With Village in Bloom in mind, work has accelerated.  Donating several days of labour, Martyn and his crew have cleared the spaces under the trees, planted meadow flowers by the gate, and removed piles of old tiles and debris.  Even the old bonfire site has been planted with wild flowers. The work has exposed graves and memorials that haven’t been seen for a generation 

 

Come and see the churchyard for yourself at the annual plant sale on Sunday, 12th May 2019, 11am to 5pm.  This year, it’s a joint venture with the PCC and Village in Bloom.  You can enjoy Kentish Cream Tea and buy a wide variety bedding plants and more exotic things for your garden.  And bird boxes (which can be personalised to give as presents)!
