ABIB Treats for Teacher….or You!

We will again have our stall on Carnival Field. Last year was fantastic for raising funds that help us make our village look great!

As well as a wide selection of plants grown by the Astwood Bank in Bloom team and those donated by Botany Bay Nurseries, there will be a wide selection of gifts and produce available at the Astwood Bank in Bloom stall on Carnival day.

The team will also be running a Scarecrow competition where the prize is this fabulous cake which is a mix of real flowers and edible “rose” cupcakes, made by locally by Rachel at Cupcakes and Dreams

Many of the gifts will make perfect end of term teacher treats, or even better a treat for yourself. Most of the gifts are handmade; many are organic and are up-cycled – made lovingly by our very own Bloom Team.

Whether its picture frames, homemade jams, herbs in novelty pots, lavender sachets, novelty waterers, wax melts, or simply plants, the Astwood Bank in Bloom stall is the place to go on Carnival Day. Remember all of the money raised at this stall goes straight back into our community.

Bloom Update

Despite the extreme heat this summer the Astwood Bank in Bloom team have managed to maintain the magnificent displays around the village.

If you helped in any way by doing a bit of deadheading whilst walking past, or perhaps occasional watering, thank you. In October we will be clearing out the summer displays and planting up ready for winter / spring, so if you want to lend a hand just drop an email to bloom@astwoodbankcarnival.co.uk
