Tintinhull Villge Hall Garden Planting We   very   recently   had   a   village   hall   garden   planting   day   in Tintinhull.   We've   a   new   hall   -   opened   Jan   2018   -   and garden-wise   inherited   what   the   builders   left   behind,   which wasn't a lot. Significant   funds   have   been   raised   over   the   past   9   months to   allow   the   garden   to   be   made   as   attractive   as   the   new building.    The    project    was    undertaken    by    Tintinhull Garden Club  on behalf of the Village Hall Trustees Support    -    advice,    plants    and    materials    supply    and assistance   on   the   day   -   and   some   financial   assistance generally,   was   provided   by   Mike   Burks   from   the   Garden Group. On   the   Gallery   Page    are   a   variety   of   photos   taken   on the   day   -   Sat   3rd   Nov   -   when   about   30   villagers   turned out   to   help   dig   and   plant.   Additionally   the   cafe   in   the village   hall   was   opened   for   the   day,   providing   hot   food, cakes   and   hot   drinks   to   keep   the   planters   and   passing well-wishers energised. Everything   went   into   the   ground   on   the   day   and   with   the weather   favourable,   it   was   a   hugely   successful   exercise. The   site   around   the   hall   really   does   look   like   a   garden now - albeit one in its early days.   Neil Garnett
