Wilberfoss in Bloom "Spring" into action

From March Wilberfoss in Bloom members will be out and about planting our spring displays and tidying the borders etc. We hope you will join us on our gardening evenings.

These will be held on the first Thursday in the month from 6.30pm to 8pm, meeting outside the Community Centre. If you can't make the evening, maybe a morning would be more to your liking - we meet on the third Thursday of the month from 10.30am to 12 noon. Everyone is welcome whatever age, it isn't heavy work, but a chance to meet new friends and help us keep the village looking lovely.

Concert in aid of the church repairs

There will be a concert by York Philharmonic Male Voice Choir on Saturday 10th June at 7.00pm in aid of the Church repairs - see here for full details or call Linda on 01759 372327.
