Pumpkin Competition; Saturday 8th October 12pm-4pm


Dear Gardeners,

Hopefully your pumpkins and gourds have been growing and flourishing-even if they haven’t, there is a category for you! Please click on the link to see details of the Pumpkin Competition to be held at Hotel Jerbourg this Saturday 8th October, 12pm-4pm. It is a great community event that will help support our fabulous St Martin’s in Bloom team who have worked tirelessly this year to make our parish ‘blossom.’ There will be live music, a bouncy castle, a raffle (1st prize of £300) and lots of tasty pumpkin treats to taste. We hope to see you there!


We thought you would like to see the gardening club entry! We’re not sure which category to enter.



Dear gardeners,

The judges will be visiting our garden as part of St Martin’s in Bloom entry on 8th August. The garden needs a really big tidy up-lots of weeding, clearing up, moving a big pile of soil and harvesting (see the pictures below!).

I would be very grateful for any help from gardening club or any other willing volunteers (adults or children) to give me a hand this Wednesday 3rd August. I’ll be in the garden from 9:30am to about 11am. Pop along any time. There will be biscuits!

Gardening gloves may be useful. Please let me know, via the blog, if you can help me. Many thanks

Mrs Judd

See what needs harvesting….
