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!)

October: Double Silver!

Posted on 29th November, 2019

Success for West Farleigh in Bloom! At the recent South East in Bloom Awards we won two silvers!! One for the Village in Bloom – improving on our bronze last year, and one for the churchyard in our first year of entering – which is an amazing achievement for Martyn and his team. Thanks to everyone who has supported us. Now we need to up our game again if we are to do even better next year. We are planning more bulb planting around the village – if anyone has a spare grass verge in front of their property they would like us to plant up please let us know – bloom@thefarleighs.co.uk. Wild flower planting is very popular with the judges and to impress them even more we are going to establish a wild flower meadow on the Ewell Lane Triangle. To involve younger people in our projects and to raise awareness of the plight of the bees and butterflies, we wonder if any of the younger generation would be like to look after a bee/butterfly attracting plant which we would provide. In return we would ask for photos and information to include next year: have more bees/butterflies have come to your garden since having the plant, time of year, time of day etc. If you would be interested in this project please contact bloom@thefarleighs.co.uk. Finally – a big thank you to all of you who grew sunflowers. We hope even more of you will grow them next year – particularly as one of us discovered an interesting fact about sunflowers this week. A recent study shows that sunflowers co-operate below the surface, sharing nutrients and demonstrating collaborative behavior – could we ask for a better symbol for our village?
