25 August 2017 - a day in the life of St Hilary

BobbyTheDog
It was an early start today with Caroline and Monica planting daffodil bulbs on No Man's Land. Around 200 have been planted so far - all generously donated by villagers.
 
After a coffee it was off to do a leaflet drop around the village to make locals aware of the Produce Market which is being held on 8 October. Early, you might say but we need surplus fruit and veg to make the produce that we intend to sell.

We have been offered donations of apples, plums and rhubarb which have already been used to make jams and chutneys. And, we have started foraging for blackberries, so if you know of any good bushes around let us know.
 
Our leaflet drop continues but as always we were waylaid meeting people - you can't not stop for a chat!. We met the two Marys sauntering home from the pub, Mary Thomas was very complimentary about the new notice board and Charlie, who was at his gate said that he had seen lots of people (including delivery drivers) stopping to take a look.  Bill Clay and Terry were admiring it as we approached
 
And, we met a lovely little dog named Bobby who enjoyed chasing the apples! Fortunately he had a name tag with a phone number so he was soon reunited with his owner Phil Thomas. There was some comment about an inflatable collar - not sure what that does but it obviously doesn't stop him from escaping!
Thanks to Bobby for his company and many thanks to everyone who offered produce. Tine to get the pan out to start cooking again!
