Our fabulous new info sign is now in place – thanks so much to Caroline Merrifield our talented local artist for providing the artwork.
The pollinators are busy doing their job in the nectar garden, which is in full bloom and glorious colour.
Outside the garden, the orchard is beginning to fruit and as well as the poppies, we have many different native wild flowers, to attract the attention of butterflies and bees.
Three goldfish have been caught, including one that was pregnant, big thanks to the local lads who fished them out – please have another go and get rid of all of them. The water level is very low at the moment, but our local farm manager (Russell Smith Farms) has kindly promised to top it up when he has finished irrigating the nearby potato field.
We hope to be able to hold an open event in September and hopefully at the same time we can unveil “The Brewers” a set of sculptures created using art fund money by a local artist, using a chainsaw and little else – watch this space!
