Plant Sale Success
A busy and jolly morning was had by all at this years’ plant sale and from the opening of the Memorial Hall doors, enthusiastic buyers were snapping up fantastic horticultural bargains for the flower and vegetable bed alike!
A big thank you to those who donated plants and seedlings for the sale and once again we are grateful to the W.I. who did us proud with their teas, coffees and home-baked cakes and biscuits. The proceeds go towards putting on the Annual Lerryn Produce Show, and with increasing costs, every little helps!
A reminder that this years’ show will be held on Saturday, 4thAugust – so, get growing, have thoughts about floral arrangements, refine recipes for the Cookery Classes and start snapping away for that winning photograph (this years’ photography titles are, for the under 16’s: ‘I’m a Zombie’ and for the adults: ‘Up the Creek’). And lastly, we would be grateful if you could remember to return your prizewinner’s cups to Sue and John Hancock.
The Lerryn Produce Association will be joining in with the national project to plant a celebratory Jubilee Oak tree to mark this memorial year. The tree will be truly local, as it has been grown from an acorn picked up “down by the river” and planted by Mr John Philp. We still await permission from the local authorities about it’s chosen site, but when this happens it will be planted and protected by a traditional metal frame, that has kindly been donated.
