Garden Notes – Glorious Spring

Garden Club

What a marvellous spring. The best blossom I have seen for years. I love the big magnolias, cherries and camellias in the garden but if you have a smaller plot you need to find something else.

For Cherries you can go very small with prunus incisa Kojo no mai to 3 ft or pick a columnar shape of tree such as Amanogawa with pale pink flowers. Remember cherry roots spread far near the surface. ...

Lyra Concert

Church

How blessed I was on Thursday 30 April to have been present at St Mary’s Church, Bentworth, for a concert given by Lyra – a group of four young Russian singers from St. Petersburg. Most of what they sang was unaccompanied and I soon realised that with voices such as theirs, no accompaniment was needed. One seized the impression that what they sang they thoroughly enjoyed and truly believed in. The church resounded to the sound of angels and I certainly hope Lyra can make a return visit. ...

News from St Mary’s School, Bentworth

Schools

The whole school marked the 70th anniversary of VE day with a day of remembrance and celebration. We were particularly lucky to be joined by many of the pupils’ grandparents, one or two of whom were able to share their own memories of VE day itself. Having spent the morning in class with the children, and some sharing a school lunch, the grandparents and other family and friends were treated to an afternoon of fabulous maypole dancing. ...
