Hemingford Village Market - Sat 9th March 2019
We will be launching new ranges of plants, children's seed kits and plant pots at our first show of 2019.
From the organisers: www.hemingfordvillagemarket.co.uk:
"The idea behind Hemingford Village Market is to give small local businesses a regular place to sell their goods within the village and give residents who can’t get into St Ives because of lack of buses etc. a mini market to visit once a month. The market takes place on the second Saturday of the month 9am – 1pm, stalls offer food, plants, flowers and crafts. It’s held at the Parish Centre, Hemingford Grey, refreshments are available all day in the Hemingford Garden Room as well".

St Ives Farmers’ Market is an exciting, interesting, alternative shopping experience that can also include competitions, tastings, cookery demonstrations."
Thriplow Daffodil Festival - Sat 23rd - Sun 24th March 2019
One of our favourite events in the calendar: come and visit the charming village of Thriplow for its annual daffodil festival. Lots to see and do, we will be in the school marquee with a range of colourful plant pots, plants, children's seeds, growing kits, and children's nature books.
From the organisers: www.thriplowdaffodils.org.uk:
"Every year, up to 14,000 people visit Thriplow to experience the warm and friendly atmosphere of our Daffodil Weekend charity fundraising event, run entirely by volunteers.
Over two days, visitors walk the car-free village to look at the daffodil displays, visit the attractions and open gardens, and potter around the stalls. Refreshments are served in the tea rooms with homemade cakes and sandwiches, or delicious hot street food can be eaten in The Taste of Thriplow while listening to live music".
