WILLOW PLANT SUPPORT WORKSHOP
Monday 20th May 2024

These workshops were very well attended and members learnt the art of weaving Willow sticks into either a Peony Crown or an Obelisk.

Louise Arthur, our tutor, is a member of Basketmakers’ Association, Heritage Craft Association, National Coppice Federation, Hampshire Coppice Group. She combines contemporary design and heritage skills with her passion for the environment.
A certain amount of concentration was required to ensure the weaving was consistent and by the end of the session our fingers certainly knew they had had a workout. Getting a 6′ obelisk into the car was entertaining!
A successful day and one which we hope will be repeated again some time in the future.

ANNUAL PLANT SALE

Sunday 12th May
Lavant Memorial Hall

As usual, this year’s Plant Sale attracted many visitors from the local community and beyond, with its wide selection of plants from East Ashling Nurseries as well as lots of members’ plants of all types at very keen prices.
Housing the members’ plants separately in a marquee outside avoided overcrowding in the main hall.

It was a highly successful event, both in terms of plants sold and the number of cream teas served; the sums raised were on a par with the record amounts achieved last year.

It was very satisfying seeing so many customers happy with their purchases and enjoying their cream teas.
The lovely weather was a huge relief and it helped to make this such an enjoyable occasion for so many.
