GARDENING enthusiasts: Head for Cliddesden’s Jolly Farmer on Sunday, at 1pm, for the always fabulous plant sale.

Thanks, as always, to the Horticultural Society for organising this sale, and to those who sow and grow such fine quality plants for others to buy.

AGM for Ellisfield Parish Council: Takes place on Monday, at 7.30pm. At this meeting, chairman and vice-chairman will be elected for the forthcoming year.

The regular parish council meeting follows straight after. As always, the meeting agenda is displayed on village notice boards and website.

MEMORIAL Hall AGM: At 7.30pm, on Tuesday. Ellisfield residents welcome, light refreshments will be served towards the end of the evening.

SUNSHINE and showers: Were forecast for bank holiday Monday, and more than 120 people took advantage of an extra day off to walk ‘off the beaten track’ through Portsmouth Estate enjoying the beautiful scenery, amazingly deep blue, scented bluebells and not forgetting halfway cake for those who walked the 5k. The event raised over £1,500 for village church funds.
