NGS Income Under Threat

 

 

The recent warm weather has been a bonus during this uncertain time and it’s s good thing to see Spring coming along with all its' glories. No doubt there are many villagers who are taking this opportunity to take comfort in their gardens and would like to visit others. This isn’t possible at the moment but there are ways round this.

 

Many thanks to Steve & Maggie Johnson for the following message:

The NGS (National Garden Scheme) is another victim of the coronavirus and no garden visits will be allowed for the foreseeable future. We would expect to raise over £1000 each year for the charity.

To help with on line fund raising we are producing a number of visit videos. The spring one is now finished and can be found here

Marie Curie, Macmillan nurses and the other nursing charities that the NGS support are working flat out at the moment and deeply worried about their future finance. The NGS is a major source of funds.

The Youtube video is open to the public.

Many thanks and kind regards

Steve and Maggie Johnson
