Bedhampton’s daffodils bloom again

Portsmouth coastguard called to reports of a body near Chichester

Have your say

Spring is in the air - and Bedhampton’s famous daffodils are blooming again.

They have sprung from the thousands of bulbs planted by the Bedhampton Daffodil volunteer group which is run by Peter Spencer and his team of helpers.

The flowers can be seen at the end of Portsdown Hill entering Bedhampton as well as alongside roads in the village, in Bidbury Park and at St. Thomas’ Parish Church where they can be seen in the graveyard.

Julia Scruton, 43, Bedhampton, who was out walking her dogs in Bidbury Park, described the fresh vibrant feel the daffodils have given the town.

“The daffodils coming into Bedhampton are fresh and make you feel welcome,” she said.

Jeanette Bell, 73, of Boldre Close, was also in the park and said: “They look beautiful when they come up in the park.”
