Bulb Planting in the churchyard

We have expanded our spring bulb planting this year to include the churchyard of St Mary’s.

With the help and support of Father Peter and the congregation, we planted a swathe of daffodils along the hedge of the Garden of rest.

Come back in the spring for photos.

Cannington Community Speedwatch

All through the year, the hardy volunteers of the community speedwatch help to keep the village roads safe.
Speed is an issue in the village due the nature of the roads, and volume of traffic at certain times of the day. These friendly folk give their time freely to help keep speeds down, and so improve road safety. We are all trained by Avon and Somerset police to carry out our duties, and anyone exceeding the limit is reported to the police and receives a letter reminding them to keep it down. Repeat offenders will get a visit from an officer, and those who are exceeding limits by a high margin will be dealt with by the police directly.

So what has this got to do with Cannington in Bloom. Well apart from having similar aims and sharing a member the speedwatch crew felt that they needed to brighten up one of their locations.

So on the 6th November decided to plant some bulbs to brighten up our sessions in the spring.

Is that car speeding? :)

Weedy Wednesday 25th June 2014

Its nearly that time of week again!

This week we have the happy couple helping to paint the railings on the small bridge over the brook!

We were going to do it on community pride day, fortunately they let us know just in time that they planned on having their pictures taken on the bridge!

Now the honeymoon is over and they have kindly offered to help.

Also on the list this week.

-Watering, yes this strange unseasonal weather continues!

-Cleaning the vandalism off the village signs.

-And if we get time, painting the railings outside the playground.

Look forward to seeing you all again.

meeting at 7 PM. at the Gurney St end of the school path.
