A huge thank you to everybody involved in the picnic for making it such a wonderful WI and Meadows Trust picnic, especially with the addition of the bird song walks from Andrew Snowdon and the lovely and talented ” Mixed Blessings”
It was lovely to see such a turn out from the village and everybody having such a great time. It demonstrated what a great community spirit there is in Hollingbourne
