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!)

November: Goulston Bungalows

Posted on 29th November, 2019

The West Farleigh in Bloom team have been hard at work over the past month in preparation for next year’s competition. With 2 silver medals this year our hopes of further success are high in 2020. At the start of the month we worked on the triangle at the bottom of Ewell Lane. A new planter underneath the road sign was filled with Skimmia and ornamental grasses and the middle section dug over in preparation for wild flowers. The area does look much neater, however a car has already driven right across it. This is a regular occurrence but we will keep on trying. We also had a working party on the bank next to Goulston bungalows that leads down to the Hollow. It was thoroughly weeded and planted up with daffodils for spring. We would like to add some shrubs there too for all yearround interest. At the same time, we planted many more daffodils by the bus stop and around the village noticeboard. We look forward to the colour these will bring next year. Both the bank by Goulston Bungalows and the Daffodil planting round the bus stop and notice board were ideas sent us to by neighbours in the village. If anyone else has any ideas for us please do let us know via the email address 'Bloom@TheFarleighs.co.uk'. We would especially like to plant some fruit trees but would appreciate suggestions where! To keep up to date with our progress do 'like' TheFarleighs on Facebook where we always post pictures and progress updates. The next meeting is at 7:30pm on 30th October at the Good Intent. Please do come along and join us
