A number of residents from Copt Elm Close helped with the planting at the entrance to the Close last Saturday ( 24th October, 2020). Many spring bulbs were planted which will provide a colourful display in the Close and from Copt Elm Road.

Where should I put this one?
Thanks to everyone who ordered plants and made the sale more successful than we could have hoped for. With four collection points the collection of orders went very smoothly and safely.
We had getting on for 100 orders and sold well over 1,500 plants (some were sold in trays of six). This was a huge effort by those who grew the plants and all for the benefit of our community.
As always, all profits go towards buying bulbs and other plants to make Charlton Kings a more colourful place to live.

The fruits of our labours
We've completed the 2019 winter replanting of the many planters throughout the village. The planting will grow and flower over the season.
We've also replanted the War Memorial and swept the traffic island so it will be looking its best for Rememberance Day 2019. The planting will develop into a display like the picture.
Our Annual trip this year was on the 7th September. Our coach was full and took us to the beautiful gardens at Wisley. All who went said that they had a very enjoyable day out.
