BBQ 2018 snaps
The Community BBQ organised to celebrate the recent Breamish Hall fundraising success went ahead in sweltering weather in the Powburn Community Garden on Saturday 7 July 2018.
As this was also the same afternoon as the mighty England football team were playing their quarter final game of the World Cup against Sweden, Sid Smailes had managed to hook up a TV, so no one who was interested missed out.
Community BBQ to celebrate fundraising success
We have today reported on the Breamish Hall fundraising success – having raised a total of £32,900 to upgrade the car park, refurbish the Hall, etc.
We would like to add our thanks to everyone who has supported the various fundraising events – and also offer MANY THANKS to the members of the Breamish Hall Committee who have worked so hard behind the scenes.
Crab apples flowering
In April last year (2015), Sid Smailes planted five ornamental crab apple trees in the Community Garden in Powburn.
Well, after carefully tending them for over a year, they are now all flowering – and they look wonderful, with each tree showing a profusion of white flowers. I’m sure that in a few year’s time, once they’ve become really established, they are going to look even better. They certainly cheer up the community garden, which is a real asset to the residents of Powburn.
Once again, many thanks to Sid for all his efforts in maintaining the garden for the benefit of residents and visitors.
