CODDENHAM OPEN GARDENS AND SCARECROWS
I am delighted to report that this event will take place next year. The proposed date is 23rd June 2019, to be confirmed a little nearer the time.
This was the first event we attended when we moved into the village, and we enjoyed it so much that when I read in the December edition of Six Village News that it was to end, I decided to volunteer to take over coordinating this event.
Thanks to David and the previous team for all their hard work in the past, and for continuing to advise and support me. However further volunteers to help at this event would be much appreciated.
If you would like to help on the Working Group or just for an hour or two on the day I would be delighted to hear from you.

email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also I hope all the beautiful gardens I have visited at previous events will open again in 2019, and that some new gardens will open for viewing as well, so that we can continue to raise money for good causes whilst having a wonderful day in the village. If you are interested or have any questions please contact me as above.
Chair, Coddenham Open Gardens and Scarecrows Working Group
WARNING : There have been a number of attempted Shed and Garden break-ins in the Village this week, the most recent being properties near and around the Church.
Everyone is asked to ensure their property is secure especially overnight and to be vigilant of any unusual activity.
Your help with the Broomhill work day would be appreciated. This year’s date is
Saturday February 24th from 10-30
We should attend to the usual tasks: removing brambles from the edge of the paths and cutting the hedge on the southern side of the hill. There are also some waste heaps left by the contractors that have to be removed. The fire will need to be tended. Bring gloves and secateurs and any other equipment that you think might be useful. There is an area to the far side of the hill that was overlooked by the contractors – it needs to be trimmed before it becomes a thicket. I look forward to seeing you.
