You are invited to a:
Plum and Cobnut Day 10:00-15:00 August 18 2018
Everyone is welcome to an open day to study and celebrate Britain’s traditional Plums and Cobnuts at Home Farm, Thrandeston, Suffolk. Learn all about these fascinating orchard varieties and their place in our orchard history and landscape.
Parking available, with the event a short walk away over grassy level ground. Contact Howard Jones at Howard.Jones@uea.ac.uk for more information or to make a booking.
NB: this is not a greenerSudbury event.
…they just log in.*
This morning was spent putting the last few log ‘steps’ in at the Quay, to make a path through the garden. The earth is as dry as dust, but we’re still trying to do only essential watering.
Lovely to see the Towpath Team (who work on the Quay seating area) this morning, having tea and Jaffa cakes in the sunshine – they’d already been there for an hour or two when we arrived, trying to avoid the intense heat of the day.
Enjoy the weather this weekend – but we won’t tell anyone if you decide that you want to join us in a tiny little rain dance at some point or other!
*Apologies for the joke. It was a bit wooden. I blame the internet.
Anglia in Bloom is coming to Sudbury today – and we will be at the Quay car park from 10:45 am and at the Kingfisher from around noon to greet the judges. If you have helped on either of these projects (you know who you are!) do come along and lend your support/wax lyrical/smile enthusiastically!
It would also be great to see the Quay volunteers who have taken over the Quay Theatre seating area.
Finally, Dan from Activ Lives sends this message:
We are really chuffed with all the help we have had at Belle Vue Park. Please come and share this high point of our second year when the Anglia in Bloom Judges come to Sudbury.
We would love a hand watering everything too.
As ever: Thursday, 10am – 12.30pm in Belle Vue Park, Sudbury.
Parking on Ingrams Well Road.
I think they are coming just about tea time – but I’d love it if you felt like talking to them about how gardening in the Park or in your area of the towns of Sudbury or Cornard has helped you.
