Growing Community

The Fiesta planning is going well. Although the Council was not forthcoming with money for our community application, the Sustainability Officer has assisted us so after a budget prune, we are hoping we will not be too out of pocket.

The street is planning a gardening day in preparation next Sunday, we are nearly ready for a Youth Tree training day on August 22nd, and the community artist is excited about the Scarecrow Making Day on September 13th. The speakers tent is full, the fairy is booked and all the neighbours are coming on board. In total we will have two homes, seven gardens and five artist studios open!

But what we need now is stalls – preferable from sustainable businesses or local artists. If you or anyone you know might be interested please get in touch with Shani at or Kylie at Red Tent Events on
