CANCELLED THIS YEAR - HBW 2020 ‘2020 Vision: Seeing and Believing’, 3rd-7th August
HBW 2020"It is with sadness that the Committee have decided to cancel HBW for this year in light of the Coronavirus.
We did not take this decision lightly but, given the size of the event and the current guidance, we felt we had no choice. This is partly because we would need to start paying for things like the marquees, with no guarantee that the event would be able to go ahead.
However, we still want to go ahead with the worksheets; we will make them available for children to download, which will give them something to do while they are off school. More will be announced on our website and on social media in the coming weeks."
 
Salisbury Flower Festival, 15th -17th September
We are planning a trip, staying for two nights in Salisbury and visiting this spectacular event.  Details are in the February magazine and in a folder in the Publicity Area together with a signing up sheet.  Please speak to me if you have any queries and do sign up soon as numbers are limited and we need to confirm asap.  Rosemary 758389.
