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. In 2019 we entered both the Village category and also the Churchyard category. In both we reached Silver medals.

 

We are entering the same 2 categories again in 2020 and are still aiming to better ourselves, at least a Silver Gilt this year!

Kent Wildlife Trust

 

We liaise with the local Kent Wildlife Trust alot in our efforts to support the environment in our village.

 

We have worked together to designate a large green expance managed by the Highways agency as a 'Wilder Verge'

They are also promoting Wild About Gardens which we are embracing. More can be found out here

This Month in the Garden

 

 

 

June: One month to Go!

Posted on 29th November, 2019

First and foremost, thank you to everyone who supported the plant sale and cream teas – it was a most successful event.

 

There is only one month to go before the Britain in Bloom judges come to West Farleigh on 4th July – please get those sunflowers going! If they are in your back garden or not visible from the road please send us photos to add to our album. We appreciate your efforts in keeping front gardens looking lovely – we are sure the judges will be as impressed as they were last year – so thank you everyone.

 

We hope that our Fathers Day Ramble on Sunday 16th June will be as popular as it was last year – this year we have devised a quiz to make the walk more interesting. The route and quiz sheet is enclosed with this month’s edition – the entry fee is £1. Entries will be collected at the two main refreshment points on the day (The Green and 2 Court Lodge Cottages (along from the church)), but you can complete the quiz at any time and post your entry with £1 to 1 The Green, Charlton Lane (by the white picket fence). Closing date is Friday 21 June. For the children we will give prizes on the day for finding a shiny stone, large leaf, pretty wild flower, something unusual like a feather or nut, and a piece of rubbish – but please don’t post this through 1 The Green!!

 

We are looking for a graphic designer who could help us with a poster to make into an information type notice – please contact us if you know someone!

 

Another date for your diary:

Sunday 11 August - we are planning a garden party with the fabulous Pete & Co to entertain us! Our next meeting is on Thursday 6 June at 7.30 pm at the Good Intent – please feel free to join us and hear more about what we are doing.
