Acanthus plants

Just this morning I have emptied a border of a large acanthus plant (bear’s britches) and I now have masses of healthy plants with big roots that I am reluctant to throw away.  If anyone would like to take any or all of these transplantable items then please do just drop on by and take them.

Thank you.

Village Telephone Box

For those who couldn’t attend the village AGM, I’m pleased to let you know that the village has finally managed to adopt the telephone box. We’re lucky that our kiosk is in pretty good shape, and shouldn’t take long to restore once the paint arrives and we have a run of nice weather. 

Once restored we’ll decide what we want to do with it or use it for. For those that don’t know, equipping it with a defibrillator has been ruled out through lack of support at last year’s village meeting. There have, however, been a number of suggestions ranging from a village museum to book or DVD exchange.

If you have an idea or suggestion, on how best to use the telephone box, please let me know.

Thanks for all the offers of help.
