Plant Sale 2015 Photo 5 (2)

On Saturday May 13th, the weather gods were kind when the Woodland Trust held its main annual fund-raiser in front of Tarvin Chapel. The Plant Sale had been widely advertised in the Newsletter delivered to every house in the community. That proved to be worthwhile because Tarvin folk turned out in big numbers to buy plants, enter the raffle, make donations and enjoy bacon rolls with coffee supplied by the Chapel. All the preparatory work that Heather Exell, Jacqui Bradley and others had done really paid off because there was a tremendous supply of high quality plants at competitive prices. Consequently, sales were an increase on last year.

So far the Woodland will benefit from nearly £1,100 and there are some late sales still to come in. There are still plants left so another chance to stock gardens will be available at the Village Fete. The Chapel also did well with the catering income adding to their funds and the Trust is very grateful to them for yet again hosting the event.

Tarvin Civic Trust thought that posting a display somewhere in the village centre might fit the bill. We considered display boards of all shapes and sizes but where would we put them? Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...
