Plant stall and Procession

Our busy plant stall on Gala Day

Our plant stall was a great success with the many customers buying a range of flower, herb and vegetable plants. Many thanks to all who helped on the day setting up and selling the plants. Thanks to everyone who brought plants to sell, and finally to all our customers.

Glebe Primary School procession entry

Glebe Primary School won three prizes for their entry in the procession. They dressed as scarecrows and crows and pushed their own scarecrow in a wheelbarrow. The second wheelbarrow carried some of their garden produce. Once at the Gala, the two 'crows' won first prize in the fancy dress. Congratulations to them all and especially to Mrs Bannister who organised their prize winning entry.


Open Gardens and Flowers in the Churches
One of the most popular events that takes place thoughout Festival Week is the Open Gardens. Several of our Members opened their gardens, and the Glebe allotments were also open. Here is a selection of photos from the week.

Glebe Allotments

The Glebe allotments were open on a sunny but chilly evening during Festival Week. It was a pleasure to see the number and variety of allotments, and to enjoy the hospitality of the allotment holders.

Flowers in the URC Church sponsored by the Society

These beautiful arrangements were created by Julia Fish. The Society provided the flowers which were on display in the United Reformed Church throughout Festival Week.

We Plough the Fields and Scatter in St Giles

'We Plough the Fields and Scatter' was created by Mary Adams and Christine Cullingham in St Giles for the 'Songs of Joy' flower festival. The flowers were donated by the Society.
