The evening went very well, but unfortunately, after being sunny for so many days previously, the weather broke so crowds were smaller than expected.

Also, the promise of ‘pedal power’ didn’t in fact materialise due to technical issues with the bikes and their hideously complex control circuitry, but this was more than made up for by the condition of all our plots and the enthusiasm with which we showed them off.

The seemingly endless and tireless work of all our volunteers fascinated our visitors, particularly the hand-painted earthenware plant pots used as signage and everything growing in both the greenhouses and the beds, and it was a great sigh of relief to hear from ‘Those In The Know’ that they were very impressed with our efforts.
