We have had a busy week preparing for one of our major events of the season “Chickens & Bantams in the Garden” with guest speaker Ivor Parrish, a renowned authority on Rare Breed Hens. It was a huge success and we raised over £5000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care. Ivor gave a fascinating speech on the all aspects of keeping these wonderful birds. We now have 35 birds of many different spices which give us enormous pleasure and plenty of eggs, 14 today,for our visitors to buy. The day was marred by a number of torrential showers but after Ivor’s talk and a delicious lunch I think every one went home having had a most enjoyable day supporting a wonderful Charity.
I must not forget the garden it is looking stunning, the daffodils around the pond are holding up well in this cool weather and the tulips are biding their time before the big blaze of colour.
I should have told you all that we are open again on Sunday 22nd April for the National Garden Scheme and teas will be in aid of All Saints Sudborough, do come along, the teas will be in a marque so no getting wet should it rain. Entrance £5.00 for a very good cause.
