Spring is coming

Gales, snow, rain, mud… and more mud!

Bursting streams and rivers rampaging under ever-changing grey to bright blue skies. There’s been a lot of weather even for Devon, and it’s only Feb!

The result of a ‘lot of weather’ is plenty of action in the garden as the spring brings new life with new buds bursting everyday.

First, a warm welcome to all new Friends and especially to our local carers and their families. We are proud to have secured a matched funding grant from Devon CC to offer free visit vouchers to our local care home teams. The vouchers are valid until the end of the year – so here is a taste of what is in store to enjoy

Thank you to everyone who makes this possible!

Before we get to Paul’s report there are a couple of urgent by date ‘last calls’ and some dates to note in your diary, so please read on..

Snowdrop Day 2021:

If you are able to bring snowdrops (safely within the guidelines) please do!

This year, although we can’t enjoy our snowdrop planting in the garden together, we can still invite our local Friends to bring common Galanthus nivalis for volunteers to plant later. These should be ‘in the green’ from your own gardens, please. If you pop your email on the box we will send you a photo of where they are planted. That way  you will be able to find and enjoy them next year – and the next

Our snowdrop display will look better each year as a result 

There is no need to let us know in advance just leave plants in the box in the open reception area from now until mid March.
