The centre piece of the tub [a lovely dwarf conifer] at the bus stop next to St Mary’s Fold has been removed! – presumably stolen as this is the 6th or 7th dwarf conifer that has gone missing in the last few years. It’s very disheartening to our YT garden volunteers who, while planting up and tending the tubs and troughs around the village, have  not only to contend with mindless vandalism but also with someone who is stealing the plants – presumably to enjoy in their own garden! The conifers add height to the tubs and it seems a pity they are not left for us all to enjoy. Over the next month our volunteers will be planting up all the tubs and troughs in the village. We would appreciate it if residents would keep an eye on them.
