“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.
