Grow Timsbury is a community organisation formed in 2021 with the aim of acquiring piece of land in the village to benefit the whole community. Through the growing of healthy, sustainable, low cost food, we will seek to improve biodiversity and climate resilience, support and nurture people’s wellbeing and mental health, and celebrate the local area. Training in its widest sense will also be central to what we do.
While our search for a piece of suitable land goes on, we are busy attending local events, formed contacts with other local growing groups. We are running a busy mini-market for local growers and producers at the Conygre Hall on the last Saturday of each month. The dates for this year are: 24th June, 29th July, 26th August, 30th September & 28th October.
To get involved please contact us on Facebook.
We are a relaxed group of villagers who have big ideas to build a more sustainable and resilient life style for the community. We take action on the climate emergency, local food, transport, green energy, opposing fracking and the expansion of Bristol airport. We support the Parish Council on these issues. Find out more about how the group works towards these broad aims and join us.
We meet at 7.30pm on the 2nd Tuesday in the month in the Jeff Sluggett Room of the Conygre Hall North Road, Timsbury. New members are very welcome at any time, just come along and introduce yourself or contact below. We hold many activities that promote gardening and crafts for members and the public:
- Annual Spring Show
- Annual Summer Show in August
- Annual Craft Fair
- Talks and demonstrations
- Visits to interesting gardens in the area
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.
