Eardisland in Bloom

On behalf of the team I would like to thank the many parishioners who have either donated items to be sold near the shop, or allowed us to pick fruit for the same purpose. In recent weeks we've had various types of apples, pears, damsons, even small trees and heather!

These sales have brought in a significant sum of money, which will be used to purchase more bulbs which we'll plant next month. With this being our only income for the year, your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Eardisland Craft & Produce Fair - Cancelled

It is with regret that this year's craft fair, due to take place place on 10th October, has had to be cancelled. Obviously this decision has not been taken lightly, but it is clear that we would struggle to attract sufficient volunteers and there had to be a question mark over how many members of the public may wish to attend, particularly with Covid 19 still being with us. Social distancing, a restriction on numbers being able to enter enclosed premises at any one time, constant cleaning, plus the need to keep a register of names and phone details of all persons in attendance re Track & Trace, all weighed against us. Just too many obstacles and too much risk. We very much regret having to make this decision and hope that in a year's time this country will be Covid free and we'll be looking forward to a 2021 Eardisland Craft & Produce Fair.
