Bleasby In Bloom & Open Gardens 2019

Bleasby’s appeal was raised dramatically by the highly successful Bleasby Open Gardens and Church event in June.

The gardens themselves were a joy to behold and represented many, many hours of planning, preparation and labour brought to the height of perfection on the day. We offer congratulations and sincere thanks to the willing residents whose gardens were admired by hundreds of visitors. Thanks must also go, of course, to the noble group of five who masterminded this, and previous, Open Garden events and to those who raised, gave and sold superb quality plants and the earnest team who baked, served and sold hundreds of cakes. In all around £2k was raised and shared between St Mary’s Church and the Village Hall

The route along Main Street between the Open Gardens and beyond was quite remarkably changed by the eye-catching, original and even amusing additions to the streetscene made by many residents who spruced and planted up their garden frontages and put out colourfully bedecked floral buckets, bikes, barrows, boxes and boots in response to the Events Group’s Bleasby in Bloom appeal – a change to be sustained!

It was a perfect demonstration of marvellous cooperation, support and pride by almost the whole Bleasby community. So many of you contributed to the day in one form or another. Even the entire Glebe Field, so beautifully laid out in formal ‘parking pattern’, between the flower-smothered Waggon and Horses and the church with its beautiful floral displays, was a sight to behold.

The WI, Bleasby School, the Village Volunteers and the highly organised car parking team all played their critical roles in producing a text book village event.
