Community Gardening & Bulb Planting

The Caldy Society is very pleased with what it has achieved in its community gardening & bulb planting over the past few years.  Our ‘Community Sessions’ have involved bulb planting and improving the entrance to the horse fields and other verges and banks around the village, all carried out by a band of volunteers. The Society has some new initiatives that we would love to implement, but to continue this programme of improvements, we need the help of a few more residents. Join us, and you’ll meet other residents, get some gentle exercise and fresh air, and light refreshments, as well as helping make Caldy look even more attractive. If the idea appeals, please contact: • Judy Wilcox simonsfield@btinternet.com • Rachel Summers 625 7604 • or Marg Kalil 625...
