Thank You & Next Gardening Day

Next Gardening Day in Butterfield Green:

Sunday 5th November 2-4 pm
We will be weeding the orchard and pruning the fruit bushes ready for winter.  Tools and Gloves to borrow and tea provided!

Apple Day Thank You

Thank you to everyone who helped with Apple Day and to all who came and enjoyed the sunshine, music, cakes, masks and neighbourly chat.

You raised over £300 after expenses, which will be used to keep improving Butterfield Green and to put on events such as Apple Day.

Goodbye SRA

We are saying good-bye to the Shakespeare Residents' Association, which organised film nights, fairs and picnics in the park, responded to planning applications and other local concerns.  Although all events were very well supported, there just aren't enough volunteer hands to do the heavy labour!  BUG (butterfield Green User Group)  will continue with work days in the orchard and organising Apple Day - and other events if possible.  The SRA/BUG website and facebook page will continue.
Particular thanks to Rachel, Pat, Tessa and Christophe who kept the SRA going over the last year.  Christophe has now seamlessly moved into managing the finances of BUG!
