Blewbury and Upton Village Produce Assocation

June 3, 2019

 – Your Local Village Gardening Club

I’ve only got reminders for you this month. Don’t forget our day trip on:

SATURDAY 8th JUNE to THE VYNE. VYNE ROAD, SHERBORNE ST JOHN, BASINGSTOKE, RG24 9HL

The Vyne is a 16th century estate and country house. It is a National Trust property.

Full details of the time and transport arrangements will be available with Karen at Blewbury Post Office or contact Maggie Maytham in Upton (01235 850126).

Slight delay on THE SUMMER SHOW SCHEDULE – it should be available by the end of May, either in the Blewbury post office or online by emailing Eileen on vpa.in.bl.up@gmail.com or by ringing Margaret in Upton on 01235 850126. You don’t have to be an expert and it’s great fun taking part. Don’t forget the Childrens’ Section – hopefully we will have a few more junior exhibitors taking part this year.

DID YOU KNOW ? The sunflower is a native plant of the Americas, where the Indians used its seed as an important source of food. The Incas of Peru were sun worshippers and used it in religious ceremonies. The sunflower leans towards the sun in a process known as heliotropism.” Happy Gardening Eileen
