It is the Parish Council's chance to say thank you to the many volunteers who turn out all through the year to help keep West Parley looking its best. The many jobs undertaken include litter picking, newsletter deliveries, neighbour car scheme, planting and tending the flowers as well as a regular team of men clearing hedges and working in the woods.
This year the reception also incorporated the awards night for West Parley's first front garden competition the photo from the left shows Valerie Briggs 3rd, Cllr John Cullen, Marilyn Baynham 1st, Charlotte Richards from Golden Acres our sponsor who presented the awards and Anne Smith 2nd prize. Refreshments wears provided and it was a very enjoyable evening.
From the success of the first front garden competition, it has now been decided to start a gardening club and the inaugural meeting will be held on Tuesday 30th September 7pm at Parley Country Club, open to Parley residents and all neighbouring parishes.
On 17th September the S & SE Britain in Bloom awards ceremony takes place in Brighton where we hope to achieve at least Silver as last year.
