Mike from Leominster in Bloom pops by to confirm the date the judging date Steve does a marvellous job planting rosemary, fuschias, marigolds, labelia and patio roses in Marius’s wooden troughs. Meanwhile Wendy does a terrific job planting ‘Magic carpet’ in pots for the horse and cart planter.
Hans visits his friend Ron and also new friend Eric as the red troughs are planted while they chat. Thank you Hans.
Pebbles from June were being painted by Anne and Ray and also Wendy and other residents. Eric, Ron and Tony made a start on painting Marius wooden plant troughs….trying to do this before the sun disappeared behind a cloud….
Marius began construct plant troughs that will surround the fountain and window boxes (painted red by Tom)
It began with Emma and residents making garden themed displays hanging in the windows…. Please take some time to look on our conversations page for some fascinating insights on schooldays, working life, school trips and wartime memories from Ron B, Eric, Cara and Colleen and Anne E.
On Thursday 21st May 2015 we opened the Travelling by Moonlight exhibition at The Courtyard in Hereford city centre. The opening of the exhibition brought people from far and wide to see artwork made by residents at The Forbury, including a ‘Clothing’ project (unfinished, but it was too good, even in its unfinished state not to exhibit) made with pupils from Leominster Primary School, a ‘Circus’ textile wall hanging and several other collaborative paintings. Every single resident, member of staff and many family members have contributed to this highly successful show of work. Art made by Jeanette, Tom, Gez and Marsha, who all have worked with residents is also included in this exhibition.
This exhibition has already been visited by a group of residents who found the show exciting and interesting – its not often we can say “our work in on display in a prestigious gallery for everyone to enjoy and see”. More residents over the following weeks will enjoy a trip to the exhibition. The show was due to close on 12 July but will possibly stay up until September (TBC).
Bon Marche sale of Summer fashions: this Thursday 21st May, 2.30pm – 4.30pm at The Forbury.
