With Covid 19 still with us it looks as though Christmas shopping will be difficult so why not join us on Saturday 5th December between 10.00 a.m. and 12 noon for our Mini Christmas Event. This will be run as our other events have been – outside with social distancing in place to keep you all safe.Continue reading “VPA Mini Christmas event”
Sadly the quiz night cannot be held this year, however your VPA Committee is working hard on other ideas for a pre-Christmas event so please watch this space and of course Village Notice boards to find out what is coming next.
Thanks to all our members for the great response to the Bulbs event, a very enjoyable weekend.
With the latest Government Guidelines for coronavirus becoming effective from Monday 14th September the VPA have been receiving a number of enquiries regarding our Bubbles and Bulbs event scheduled for Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th September 2020 from 10.00 a.m. to 12.00 noon.
As we are a shop we are allowed to go ahead and to make sure that everyone stays safe, the event will be held outside. We would ask you please to observe the social distancing system which will be in place. Parking will be available by the Bowls and Croquet Club to save too much chaos by the Village Hall.
We are looking forward to seeing you but regretfully the “Bubbles” will have to be held over for another time. This year our selection of bulbs has some of the old favourites and some exciting new varieties, as well as bulbs chosen by designers and floral experts alike. We look forward to seeing you.
It seems a little premature to be thinking about Spring when we are scarcely into Autumn but as most of us were caught out by strange circumstances that hit us all in March of this year, perhaps some forward planning is a good idea.Continue reading “PLANNNG YOUR VEGETABLE GARDEN FOR NEXT YEAR”
Yes, our Bubbles and Bulbs event is back! The VPA are once again pleased to be able to offer you a wonderful selection of autumn bulbs. The event will be suitably distanced and sanitised to keep our members safe. Join us at our two-day Autumn Bubbles and Bulbs Event from 10:00am to 12:00 noon on 19 and 20 September 2020.
Flowering bulbs, planted in autumn, will flower in spring and early summer. Our collection of bulbs are top quality and provide excellent value. More information on the VPA Events page.
The VPA are looking to order seed potatoes this year, for the 2021 season with delivery in January, in several varieties.Continue reading “Seed Potatoes”

Make a Bug Hotel
This is the last project!
A bug hotel is useful as well as fun. It will help the beneficial insects that visit the garden by providing places for them to lay eggs, avoid predators and overwinter in the dry and the warm. Our bug hotel is a very simple one that anyone can have a go at making.Continue reading “VPA Young Gardeners: Project No. 7”
