VOLUNTEERS from the Hailsham Old Pavilion Society (HOPS) took charge of the Bates Farm Bluebell Walk in Arlington.

They provided catering for the two days serving a range of lunches, soups, teas and coffees for visitors enjoying the walks on April 19 and 20.

HOPS volunteers also manned the farm gate and worked hard to make sure everything ran smoothly.

Tom Chapman, a HOPS committee member, said: “Bluebell flowers were blooming and made a lovely contrast with the white anemones.

“The weather was overcast with sunny spells - but most importantly it did not rain.

“There was a regular stream of visitors coming through the gate to enjoy the farm trails and animals.”
