London Road ( the main road through the village)
The village Hall can be seen in the distance
I've just been gossipping
New people have bought the bungalow on London road, and I've been pumping animal helper Pat for information, just in case the latest additions to the village may be potential Flower Show entrants
Apparently they come from a hamlet, three miles away and look as though they have had professional decorators " in".
I need to work a little harder, in order to find out if they like gardening or have a potential for being a novelyty vegetable winner!
I have also noted that there is a healthy hydrangea in their front garden!
The new people that have moved into anchor house, I have not seen yet, but they have tomato seedlings growing in their conservatory , which is, I think, a positive sign too
Yola and Colin, who used to run the village shop have their house up for sale too....me and the neighbours noticed that a youngish family were looking around it yesterday.....( entrants for the junior novelty veg class perhaps?)
Does NOTHING miss our trained eyes?
All new residents of the village will be " invited " to take part in this years' show, I will send each household a schedule with a hand written note attached
Hopefully newbees will feel obliged to make the effort when cornered by a mad Show Secretary
anyhow hasn't it been proved thst that a gentle gossip is good for you?
I believve it is.
It shows you are inclusive and interested in people!
And ok ok ok
I' m a bit nosey
