Caversham Court ~ Bean Pole Day

Despite an at times cool breeze, this our eighth such event was well attended with a wide range of stalls selling everything from plants to reconditioned garden tools.

Room for improvement?

Reading Beekeepers offered a range of honeys and related items .....

..... as well as information about bees and beekeeping.

All things wooden .....

..... including these boxes made from recycled timber.

RSPB's range of bird tables, nest boxes and feeding stations.

Tools for every possible gardening activity.

An excellent variety of garden plants where available, .....

..... while nature nurture provided activities for children.

Our supply of bean poles rapidly departed .....

..... in more senses then one!

Our thanks to everyone who supported the event helping make it a success, we hope to see you all again next year.
