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.

In 2020 we were so pleased to be awared a Silver Gilt.

 

Fingers crossed for 2021!

April 21: New Orchard

Posted on 30th June, 2021
You will recall reading Rays Farleigh Feathers article last year about the pear orchard betweeKettle Lane and Gallants Lane being grubbed out leading to the loss of winter habitat foScandinavian redwings and fieldfares and our native thrushes as well as for woodpeckerswrens and tits in the summer.
 
To try and encourage these birds back to West Farleigh, the village Bloom team have bought some fruit trees froKeepers Nursery and planted them in the field above the cricket club (thank you, landowner) where they can benjoyed by everyone as they watch the cricket or by those walking the footpath adjacent to it and hopefully bflocks of birds!!
 
We hope everyone is loving the abundance of snowdrops, crocus and daffodils around the village we cant wait tsee all the daffodils we planted along Lower Road, the start of Mill Lane, and around the cricket pitch gate at thbottom of Church Lane, as well as all the other bulbs on the Teston Lane Triangle and in the Churchyard.
