Due to the postponement of the village fete until August, Gerry Vaughan is holding a plant sale at Little Talboys, 12-13 Main Street on Saturday 11 June 10am – 4pm. Gerry tries to offer plants around half the price you would pay at a garden centre, and they are fabulous value.

There are also some tomato plants available now at £1 each, fully hardened off ready for outdoor planting. Please contact Gerry by phone 870191 or email and do come along on the day with your friends. All proceeds to the church and village fete.

STOP PRESS: Gerry would be delighted to receive any plant contributions from villagers to sell on the day.
