 Happy Feet Garden Tours -

Norfolk

 Sunday 16th - Thursday 20th June 2019

A garden tour of Norfolk in 2019 will be the eighth trip for Happy Feet travellers! Leaving early on Sunday morning 16th June, to reach our hotel in Norwich by late afternoon, with a garden to visit en route! I anticipate we will visit seven gardens/nurseries over those four days, including the Royal Sandringham Estate, and also a couple of gardens under the National Garden Scheme, with the addition of an optional guided tour of Norwich with lunch (or a little free time to ‘do your own thing’!) The cost of this trip will include the following:  entry to all those venues, all coach travel, with pick up points along the A39 from Minehead to Bridgwater; four nights’ accommodation (nb: single supplements will apply) three course evening meal and breakfast, the use of leisure amenities at the hotel, all gratuities (hotel/driver etc.,) and where applicable, guided tours, lunch/refreshments. A deposit will be required by the end of November, so if anyone is interested, do please contact me if you would like to join our little group, I can then send you the booking form, and final itinerary. The group is run on a ‘pay what you get’ policy, there are no hidden extras, it is all purely self-financing. Finally, you don’t necessarily have to be a gardener! I like to think these trips of ours are arranged as a ‘community’ project, where people who may be on their own can make new friends, or for those of course, who would like to bring along a fellow companion.  We are a friendly crowd, there is always plenty of laughter, good conversation and in fact on a lot of occasions, the ‘horticultural’ side of things take second place! All newcomers and past travellers will be made very welcome. Mo (Plomgren) Holford Tel: 01278 741152   or  email:  plomdove4145@googlemail.com 

Race for Life

On Sunday 15th July, Liz Guttridge with her daughter Debbie, in memory of Tony, took part in the Cancer Research Race for Life event held in Taunton. In temperatures of 32C they both ran a 5Km circuit in just under and just over 46 minutes. A sum of just under £900 was raised for the charity with thanks going to all in the Plough Inn who generously subscribed towards that sum. Well done Liz and Debbie.

‘Help Holford Hall’

Holford & District’s refurbished and enlarged community hall is about to become a reality. But we still need your help. The Hall committee has successfully secured £565,500 in grant funding from the charitable trusts listed below. We now have sufficient funds for the main project, but will need a little more money, and some practical help, to finish off the Hall.
