Trelawnyd Conservation

 I am only typing a quick follow up to this morning's prattfall blog because I am all clean and tidy before I go to fat club (weightwatchers) and I want to curb my urge to wander onto the dirty field to see if the sheep have eaten any more of my raspberry bushes.
( The ever hungry ewes broke into old Bosoms last night and demolished my fruit plants -the little bastards)

Anyhow the Trelawnyd Conservation Group has been hard at work today planting up the green areas of the village today, so I thought I would " big up" their endeavours somewhat this afternoon


 I hope that all of the volunteers get some positive feedback from their fellow Trelawnyd-ites
It's amazing just how much some thoughtfully planted out flower beds can lift the centre of the village.

  2. Very pretty! Flowers make me feel cheery. :)
    Sorry about bosoms! Sheep can be quite devastating in the garden.

  3. I love 'The ever hungry ewes broke into old Bosoms last night and demolished my fruit plants -the little bastards' your way with words certainly made me laugh out loud! The village is looking lovely.

  4. I hope you are wearing the most lightweight clothing that you own. That means a lot.

  5. John - you are so lucky to live in a village where there is such community spirit - no doubt though that you are a great part of it.

    I do agree about raspberry jam in trifle, but only if the fruit used ifsraspberries (I often use a tin but had plenty of fresh strawberries so used them instead.)

    The raspberry affair eh!
    No I am not part of the conservation group.. But I do intend to help them out sometime if they need any extra hands

  7. Looking gorgeous! What a great community. I used to be a 'weigher' at a WW meeting and women would disrobe down to their slips and all manner of crazy. I suspect a fair few also threw up as well as the voiding of bladder and bowel!

  9. Beautiful gardens.

    I love that you call weight watchers the "fat club".

    We have a charity that is called Helping Hands for abused people who need a safe place and supplies. You donate goods for resale and that goes toward their needs. I said all that to say this. I slip up now and then and call it "Wife Beaters" and do get some strange looks.

    I think if we ever have a messy conversation over Scotch Eggs there might be a laugh or two.

  10. Just a little show of caring for a common area makes a big difference. I hope the Weighing of the Stones is less traumatic than this morning's Tesco run.

  11. "It's amazing just how much some thoughtfully planted out flower beds can lift the centre of the village." ...Yes indeed and it is also amazing how an oil drum filled with semtex could also lift it!

  12. An excellent use of public space! Everybody deserves access to beauty.

  16. The flowers are loverly. Even a small garden can make all the difference in the world.

  17. John,
    Jenny and i think you are a credit to the community and that you are so happy .With your love of animals,local events,older residets and the wonderful history of this beautiful village we appreciate your involvment.
    Dont wait for the flower show before we next see you.
    Wewould appreciate your opinion on the proposed development opposite us.This has been a blot on the landscape for years and we think it will improve the area.as our frontage will be a blight on the sale of the properties we have been prompted to refurbish our frontage.This was restricted by an earlier conservation officer who said it enhanced the beauty of the village and must be retained.
    We have contacted the new officer and he has similar views and rejected our proposal that we replace it to match the cottage on the corner of well street.This was number 1,2 and 3 London road.
    We will retain the old sign of I P Jones,which he does not like,and the P O box.
    The planners need plans,architects drawings etc
    Our idea will cost us about £ 1000 and his will be £5000.
    As we are joining the elderly residents we will not comply as the work will be so disruptive.
    The opinions of your readers will be much appreciated and any advice.
    best regard to you and Chris
    Jen and Mike
