Village Planting & Spaces by the Parish Council
The Parish Council coordinates planting in many boxes and tubs across the village with many volunteers. We also manage the Miners’ Memorial Garden and the Triangle in Church Lane. Some of this is supported by involving the Community Payback Team of people doing their Community Service. We are aiming to make the planting more sustainable – lasting longer, beneficial to wildlife and possibly including some edible plants. The scheme was originally started by villagers inspired by the In Bloom national scheme.
Get in touch with the Clerk f you have any ideas or would like to help out in making the village look attractive – there is some much that we could do.
St Mary’s School also does some gardening projects with the children.
The next Taste of Timsbury Food & Drink Festival will be on Saturday 26 Sept. 2020. The first was held in Sept. 2016 with around 1000 people enjoying a sunny day sampling the wonderful local produce, hearing talks on food related themes, and learning top cooking tips from the experts. The buzz was fantastic and the feedback we have received has been incredibly positive. . Generally we are networking with many local groups and businesses promoting local and good food.
