WITHINGTON FLOWER FESTIVAL AND OPEN GARDENS - a plea for help from Sue Prout

“Withington is the village at the end of the Whiteway, about 10 miles north of Cirencester. We will be holding a flower festival and open gardens on the 2nd & 3rd of July 2016. This is to help pay for repairs to our grade 1 listed church which will cost in excess of 60,000.We were wondering if your members would like to be involved? The theme is "a Cotswold Collection", which gives scope for  a wide range of creative designs. There will be a viewing morning on the 2nd April from 10.30 till 12 noon at the church to plan the topics and locations of the displays.  So far we are planning The Cotswold Way, The Village School, The Roman Villa, Northleach Prison,  Bell Ringing, A Railway Scene, and a suitably spectacular display from the bible- but there is both room and scope for more. It would be lovely if you could help us out, or if not, perhaps your members will enjoy a summer afternoon in Withington, visiting the festival and open gardens?”

If anyone would like to be involved, please contact sue.prout@talk21.com.
