BLUEBELL TRAIL: Phiippa Vine owner of Bluebell Farm shop tells me that over 22,000 people visited the Bluebell and Farm Trail this year which is amazing in itself. Almost Every day a different charity benefitted from running the event and on fine days each earned thousands of pounds for local charities. Amazing. I know I enjoyed investing in a season ticket as always and was able to watch the bluebell’s progress throughut their season. Lovely.
