Village set to bloom in planting competition

A RADIO presenter and gardener will kick off a planting competition.

A plant sale at the Priory Church Hall in Church Street, Deeping St James, at 9.30am on Saturday heralds the start of the village’s annual unusual container contest.

Daphne Ledward will attend the sale and will give a planting demonstration during the event. The contest is part of the village’s East Midlands In Bloom effort.

Coffee and cake will be served and there will also be a raffle.
