FRESH COFFEE, TEA AND CAKES AT ST ANDREW'S EVERY SATURDAY IN JULY

Donations

Following the success of the Church Saturday Coffee and Cake Mornings, they will now be held on the first Saturday of each month, into the future. The Coffee Mornings have proved to be a great opportunity to pop in and enjoy a cup of fresh coffee (or tea) with the homemade cake selection of the day. Regular attendees, occassional visitors from the village and further afield, dog walkers fancying a break and many others have taken advantage of these events and we hope to continue them into the winter. Our next coffee morning is on Saturday 3rd September.

DONATION OF TREES FOR QUEEN'S CANOPY CELEBRATION

A note from David Dalzell - for the villagers of Thursford
As part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations, October 2022 will see a call to the nation to plant a tree as part of the Queen's Canopy.

Number 6, North Lane, Thursford, is offering 30, two-year-old oak saplings that were planted outside in 2020 from acorns gathered under an oak on Walsingham Road. They will be available at the front verge throughout the spring and summer season, and will also be available on the Green during the Jubilee Sunday celebrations.

These are being offered to anyone in the village who would like to plant a tree as part of the Queen's Canopy project.

Once the growing season is done, and the planting season starts from October 2022, they will be ready for planting into their final position. The Queen's Canopy project will begin from Oct 2022.

As part of the celebrations, we invite you to photograph your planting and send images through to kerry_thursfordpc@yahoo.com so that they can be published in a future edition of the Tablet.

Once you pick up your tree sapling, all you need is:

A Spade and gardening fork
A cane or stake to support the tree
with a guard

We hope you'll invest in the village's natural heritage.
