MEMBER’S UPDATE, 22nd September 2016.

Dear Member,

Congratulations to all who worked so hard to ensure that Strathkinness gained another Gold Award in the Beautiful Fife Small Village Competition. The Judges Special award for Horticultural Achievement for the Community Garden is an outstanding result, and recognition for the efforts of the Trust Members.

The Beechgrove Gardener’s Question Time production team will be in the village on 28th,29th and 30th September to record the programme. The crew will be filming on these days throughout the village and in Julia and George Young’s garden at Blebo Craigs . They plan to be filming in the Community Garden on Friday from 11am until 3pm and the producers would love to have interested spectators come along during the filming. The Primary School Allotment will be featured in the programme and the School Garden Cub children and helpers will be participating in the programme.  Parents will be welcome to join them during the filming on Friday morning.

 If you have any gardening problems, the producers would like to hear them and possibly include them in the programme.

We still have a bit of light preparation work to do along at the Community Garden and if you are able to assist we would be very grateful for your help. We are doing a final purge on Sunday morning from 9am and would welcome your input for a couple of hours.

Bob Bilson, Ann Mudie, Brenda Lawrie, Liz Johnson and Jane Blyth are preparing to decorate the Hall to have it looking it’s best for the recording on Thursday evening. If you have any shrubbery in your garden which might be of interest to them please contact Bob on 850196.

Many thanks for your continuing support and interest,
