Bentworth Bike Club

Events The Villager

On the 14th July, sixteen members of the BBC (Bentworth Bike Club) together with 2 support vehicles, one driven by the husband of a cyclist and their daughter and the other containing our bags and baggage, left Bentworth to cycle to Portsmouth. We caught the overnight ferry to Ouistreham, France and then cycled along the Normandy Beaches before departing from Cherbourg 3 days later having covered approx. 170 miles. The age range of the cyclist was 16-70 and of various abilities, some wanted to add miles to the direct route and others took the easiest way. Everyone stopped to admire the views, visit some of the WW2 memorials and sup the odd coffee or glass of something local. The memorials along this part of the French coast, including the Pegasus Bridge and Arromanches, made us all stand back and think about the horrors of war and the sacrifices of not just the service men and women but also the local people who sheltered and assisted them. ...

The Kathryn Mercy Home

Church The Villager

Way back in 1988 Ben and I were introduced to Reverend Jeyapaul from Tamil Nadu in Southern India. Little did we know that this was to be the start of a friendship which would stand the test of time and result in hundreds of lives being transformed by the dedication of Jeyapaul and his son Charles, and by the formation of the Kathryn’s Mercy Home Trust. ...

Garden Notes

Garden Club The Villager

What an odd year. So much rain earlier causing tremendous growth and then the ground cracking in August from lack of rain. The first flowering of the roses was good but damaged by rain. While they are resting I have great colour from phlox, dahlias and crocosmias. With the geranium Rozanne tying them all together. One rose that fills the gap is The Fairy. This is a 2-3ft shrub covered in July with sprays of double pink flowers. Think of the small sprays on some of the ramblers. It is tough and bushy and does not seem to suffer from blackspot. I have it with the grey stachys lanata (lamb’s ears) a very pale pink hardy geranium and backed by berberis Rose Glow. This combination reminds me of the planting in the Jekyll garden at Upton Grey. There the effect is done by larger pink roses, lambs ears and white, pink stained lilies. I have just been to Bowood House in Wiltshire where they filled box edged beds on the terrace with The Fairy. ...
