Whittington in Bloom

Good Morning All,

As the days get longer it is now quite noticeable how successful the bulb planting has been.  As the green stems are appearing it makes me smile and I am bursting with pride for all the work we did as a team and for those of you who also went it alone.  I cannot wait to see the daffodils bloom and to move onto our next project.

I am hoping to arrange a meeting soon (if I have the support) to have a village open garden event in late June or early July.  This will entail people of the Parish giving the paying public access to your garden.  No matter how big or how small throughout the Parish we will need about 20 in total.  If you would be prepared to open your garden for the day between the hours of 11 am and 4 pm will you please let me know.

I will be approaching the Village Hall to assist in providing afternoon tea and taking an entrance fee for a ticket.  Additionally, I hope to link in with the PCC to see if they can assist with supporting this event through the church.  At this time I have the support of the Parish Council.

Come on Whittington in Bloomers lets get our village on that floral map. 🌹🌻🌼🌷🌸💐🌺

  1. Sadly, we have to use Dad’s (John Keegan) blog to advise that he died on Friday very peacefully in Lancaster Royal Infirmary in his 80th year. It would have been both Mum and Dad’s 80th this year and we had big plans for a celebration.
    Mum and Dad moved to Whittington in 2001 from Cambridge after Dad’s heart attack and his decision to retire from business. It was always their plan to retire to somewhere in the Cumbria after many years of living in Carlisle when Steph and I were young. Looking for a home was hampered by the foot and mouth outbreak and it was difficult for them to look at properties but as soon as they looked at Loyne Park and visited the Dragons Head the decision was made.
    During his time in the community, he worked consistently for what he saw as the good of the community and was amused when the community didn’t agree with his views. He last made a comment on Face Book or Twitter in January and it is the longest period he hasn’t he hasn’t been blocked by someone, and I noticed a message today from Andrew Neil asking where he was!! Currently we are unable to make any arrangements in respect of the funeral as a result of the Coronavirus restrictions and it is likely that the funeral will be a very restricted family affair which is sad for us because we wouold have loved to give our lovely Dad the send off he deserves. However, we plan to have a celebration of his life when our Country is back to normal.

    Thank you for the many lovely messages and cards we have received and we will use the blog to keep people informed.
