Calling all gardeners…

6 February 2012

Last May, Locally Grown, MBC’s first ever plant sale raised more than £600. It really was a great event and I remember reporting at the time how…  “in the Sports Hall tables groaned under the weight of hundreds of seedlings and cuttings while in the Meeting Area scores of visitors were being treated to some of the finest home baking ever to leave an oven”.

Well this year Nicky Gibb and her team are planning a repeat.  Saturday May 12th is their chosen date which, I’m reliably informed, means that we are fast approaching the time when all you green fingered types need to start taking cuttings, splitting perennials and sowing extra seeds.

Last year the proceeds of the sale were used to offset the cost of an X-Site children’s holiday; this time they will be divided equally between Simon on the Streets and CROP.

If you would like any more information about Locally Grown or if you have any medium sized plant pots to spare (1, 1.5 or 2 litre) would you please email Nicky at
