Barbara Clough has formally handed over the running of the Bembridge Community Gardeners to Arthur Robinson ably assisted by Nick Thornton with his wife Chris doing the accounts . Barbara hosted a coffee morning for the Gardeners and officially handed over although she wants to stay a member of the team but without any responsibilities .
They looked through some of the photos they have since the late 1980’s when the Weeders first started, when both Barbara and Arthur were on the Parish Council, and the gardens have come a long way since then .
The current members personally funded the presentation of a Bird bath as a surprise token of thanks and installed it in her back garden with some planting, and the sun came out as you can see in the photo.
Thank you Barbara and the Gardeners
