The Circle of Friends are planning a Mundford Open Gardens Event on Saturday 11th August 2018 from 11am to 5pm to raise funds for Mind (for better mental health) and CLIC Sargent (young lives VS cancer).
They are looking for volunteers to open their gardens for this event. No garden is too big, too small, too formal, too informal. This is a great way to get to know your neighbours and make new friends, to see how they enjoy their garden, their favourite plants and to take inspiration, We are keen to have a variety of gardens, and already have had a great deal of interest.
If you would like to take part in this friendly community event please get in touch. Any offers of help on the day, donations of raffle prizes, cakes etc would be very much appreciated.
Contact Jan 878323, Syrena 878692 or Pat 878483 or see the events page for the date of our next planning meeting.

Although the Parish Council currently have no allotments going spare we could do with having some names on our waiting list.
If you would like to be put on this list (this is also open to Cranwich and Ickburgh residents) please send your name, address and telephone number to the Parish Clerk.
We still have room for one more bench that needs a sponsor, Sponsoring a bench in Mundford can often be an apt way of commemorating a loved one, however, it can also be used to celebrate a special occasion such as a wedding or anniversary or you may have a favourite quote or short verse that you would like to display . If you are interested in this the cost is in the region of £385 however this may vary at the time of ordering.
Please contact the Parish Clerk if you would be interested in this idea.
Updated 6-Dec-17 – room for just one bench left!
