Passing Through and Settling

September Report

By Holly Rumble

August was all about sunflowers! Our sunflower trail has been a great success, with bright yellow flowers seen in front gardens throughout the village. I measured the five tallest sunflowers on 31st August to determine the winner of the tallest sunflower: an incredible 330cm (12ft10) at 18 Thornton Close. Take a look at the map and photos here:

On 23rd September there will be a candle-lit labyrinth on the recreation ground, starting at 7pm: a lovely way to mark the turning of the seasons.

Looking forward to October we have Round 2 of our Bird Drawing Challenge in which I hope we’ll complete drawings of the final 65 birds. This event is promoted as part The Big Draw, so hopefully we’ll manage it! It takes place 10am-2pm Monday 27th October in the North Room of St Andrews Church, and all ages are welcome, as before. Many thanks to Mandy Maxwell for her support.

We will be exhibiting photos, drawings and films from this project at a public exhibition on Saturday 1st November. Please keep an eye on the website for details.
