Speldhurst in Flower

The Millennium Sign Flower Beds at the end of Southfields were created by volunteers in 2016 with the aid of a Parish Council grant and the donation of some plants by local residents.

The idea was to have bee-friendly plants which are easy to maintain and provide colour through most of the year, for the benefit of the whole community.

In 2017 the renewal of the flower bed at the Roopers - Ferbies junction was begun after a period of neglect.

Two large, hardwood flower troughs made in the village were installed outside the Village Hall and the Violin Shop in 2018 after a second grant was received from the Parish Council. Speldhurst Beavers are helping to plant and maintain the first.  A third flower trough was introduced in 2019 outside the Church gate at the Langton junction.

These are small projects which just need a handful of enthusiastic volunteers of any age who live nearby to maintain them. (Volunteers on our Southfields rota help just 3 times each from June to October.)

If you are like-minded villagers wanting to brighten up 'your' corner of Speldhurst we would be happy to help you get started. Cubs or Brownies doing Gardening Badges, or Students looking for Community work could help. Whoever you are, if you would like to be involved or have any comments:
