May 14th Caroline Wright gave a fascinating talk about how Brackenhurst achieved the esteemed Gold award at Chelsea Flower Show both in 2008 and 2013! We were struck by the dedication to detail and commitment to the project that was shown by the team.
Paul Wright brought many plants to sell along with others donated by Crink Lane Nurseries in Southwell. Friends also donated plants. Southwell Garden Centre donated a plant for the raffle and Anthony Giles donated £5 which was used to purchase a Fushia for a “guess the number” game which raised £13 almost tripling the amount given! The evening raised £219.75! Many thanks to all involved.
Total so far £1176.50!
