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.

It is winter isn’t it?

Having spent the day in the Community Orchard on Wednesday with the Cannington Centre students, I do wonder.

The weather was beautiful, the sun was shining, ladybirds were out and the raspberries tasty.

It felt like Autumn!

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? :)
