Well, at last we have heard from the judges. They will be visiting our lovely village on Monday July 10th. We will be placing containers around the village in dull corners, all marked as Titchfield pots. We are hoping everyone will put out their containers and baskets for that day and hang out their flags to welcome back judges after over 30 years.
We are having a number of clear up days for weeding pavement edges and litter picking. On June 25th, throughout the day, you will see us in the core of the village. Any help would be really appreciated.
Any children can enter a scarecrow competition . They need to make any size scarecrow out of recycled materials. Bring the scarecrow to the grass at the back of the community centre on Sunday July 9th at 4 pm with name and address attached .
We are awarding prizes for the best house container, the best basket, the best business and best private window.
We had to work out for the judges how many voluntary hours we had spent on this during 2017. It is a 360 hours so far. We started in October and will finish for this year in July, so it has consumed a lot of time. However, it has been an amazing committee who have been committed and enthusiastic, plus great fun.
We may not achieve an award this first year but the committee will hold their own award ceremony for prize winners and sponsors whose gifts of plants, compost and tokens has boosted our budget of £350 from the Titchfield Village Trust
