WI Garden Club Trip...

3a Wimborne secret garden
On a pleasant sunny Saturday in May 8 members ventured out to the secret garden and Seles house in Wimborne. Extraordinary place, the brain child of Ian Willis. Sadley since his death it seems no one wants to take on this amazing place so it is to go up for sale. Going around the house is like stepping back in time.


The garden consists of many garden rooms all themed and several quirky areas. They did have tea and cakes for sale which looked scrumptious but there wasn't much seating . So, we headed off to the red lion pub in Sturminster Marshall and had a super lunch.

Waste Watch Scheme
- operating in the village.

Although papers can be separated and recycled with the bi-weekly refuse collection this scheme means that the local parish can financially benefit from separate treatment of newspapers.

There are two collection points each located at the Parish Office and the car park of the Village Hall by means of a green bin or box.

Your used newspapers and magazines can be bundled into manageable piles and securely tied with sturdy string. Newspapers and magazines should be bundled separately but can be placed in the same boxes and are regularly collected.

Please use this method of recycling where possible as credit is received via the current scheme to the parish for use towards local matters.
