Have your say

Autumn brings colour, falling leaves and jumpers as we try to work out how cosily we need to dress.

Lucky for us the sun still shines on our little garden and our gardeners, and much as we try to get on with work-life and reality, we just can’t keep away.

This weekend we are planting our first fruit trees in the new orchard space that sits with the new pavilion, which is still under construction.

So hard hats and wheelbarrows and a bunch of us will be thinking of Alison, a well-loved sister of Hilary, who asked us to plant some trees in her memory.

Then Sunday will bring that long-awaited scarecrow-making day in the community garden, so bring your hats and boots and old woollies to scare off the crows, and bring the little ones to help and make paper scarecrows to takeaway. It’s all free, and runs from 1pm-3pm with a prize draw for Alyssa Mae at 3.30pm so get your tickets now.
