Local charity – The Fircroft Trust – held their annual Spring Fair on Saturday 10th May. After heading for the plant stall, I was diverted by some very interesting books, particularly a well-thumbed paperback by Honoré de Balzac, Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and a couple of thrillers I fancied. A bargain at 75p each, I tried to pay, soon to realise that the book stall was in the next room – these were from the centre’s bookshelves…
A straightforward transaction at the plant stall – home-grown tomato and cucumber plants and some container plants, all at a fair price, a pleasure to support a local charity.
The Fircroft Trust gardening project is well worth a visit on Thursdays between 2.00pm and 4.00pm for summer bedding plants, herb, shrubs and vegetables; containers and baskets can be bought or made to order.
