Declutter and help support the Weald Community Shop at the same time by taking part in a Table Top Sale. Plus don’t forget your Beebomb!
TABLE TOP SALE: Decluttering? Downsizing? Generally, have too much stuff? Then join in the Table Top Sale in the Weald Memorial Hall on Saturday 8 June and raise money for yourself and the Weald Community Shop. Bring in your good condition clothes, books, toys, household items and sell them at your own table. The proceeds from table ‘rent’ (£10 per table) go to the Community Shop. Entrance to the sale will be free for shoppers and there will be refreshments and homemade cakes available for purchase. Book your table and pay at the Community Shop.
SPECIALITY BREADS: A wide selection of speciality breads can now be ordered at the Weald Community Shop through supplier Rusbridge Family Bakery in Southborough. Choose from Rosemary & Sea Salt, Seedy Italian or Feta & Olive. More details available at the shop.
MORE BEES PLEASE: Did you know that 97 per cent of British wildflower habitats have been lost since the second world war? You can do your bit to restore wildflower habitats for bees and butterflies by purchasing a Beebomb for £6 from the Weald Community Shop. The Beebomb’s are seedballs which are handmade in Dorset. They are packed with seeds from 18 native wildflower species which can be scattered straight onto open ground. The clay in the bombs protects the seeds whilst they germinate. About 20% of the seeds will start flowering in the first year and the biennials and perennials will start in the second year. For more information pick up one of the bright yellow leaflets in the shop or go online at www.beebombs.com.
VILLAGE WALK: This month the walk, which started as usual at the Weald Community Shop, went immediately along a byway, out to Nizels and back through a big meadow ending up again back at shop where coffee was served. There was much talk during the walk about the emerging bluebells and how lovely it was to see and smell them. The next walk will be on Saturday 4 May departing from the Community Shop on the green at 9.45am
MUSICAL FEAST: Don’t forget the CIRRUS concert in the Memorial Hall on Monday 6 May at 7pm when cellist David Burrowes and his professional colleagues, Martin Smith and Suzanne Loze on violins and Morgan Goff on viola, will be joined by pianist, Mike Stanley for Elgar’s Piano Quintet op 84. Tickets available on 01732 454222.
