elcome to 2019. (OK, you might get this a bit early, but we wanted to get in first!) January & February may not be the busiest time in the village but we still have plenty to share. Many of you may be starting with new year resolutions so we've come up with ideas to give you some inspiration. We're also highlighting village groups and societies. We really are blessed with the level of activities that go on here. There's no pre-requisites - all welcome new members, so maybe 2019 is the year to join up and try something different, meet more neighbours and get involved. 2018 was a very good year in the village. Not least a hugely successful Gala, the opening of the wonderful new Peace Garden and Labyrinth, and a fabulous WW1 Centenary Weekend. All demonstrating the power of collaboration and commitment across the village. This year we have the Horticultural Society's Centenary - so no resting on laurels! Let's keep up the good work in 2019!

New Year

along to a quiz, see the noticeboard or their page on www.eastononthehill.com for more details.

Get Involved with The Gala! The annual Gala is an envied focus of community spirit and entertainment in the village. Last year we raised over £3,200 for village organisations. This year’s 3-day event will be 25-27 May (late May Bank Holiday). Planning starts in January. A committee meets once a month on a Monday evening in the Blue Bell. Each village organisation that takes part is asked to provide a representative to join these meetings. They also welcome

6

volunteers, from the village, who would like to participate and lend a hand. Jobs like publicity, running the raffle, organising entertainments and games are delegated to small groups or individuals who then report back to the main committee. The first meeting will be Monday January 21, 7.00pm at the Blue Bell. Everyone is welcome to attend, and get involved in the constructive planning and running of the weekend. And if anyone wants to step up to the plate as overall co-ordinator – please put yourself forward. So, lots of opportunitites to make a difference in 2019... why not give something new a try!

In the Village Have you heard about Nextdoor?

Bowls Club update Our November fundraiser was a huge success. Thanks to all who attended and generously supported the ‘Badger Resistance Fund’. If you haven't been up to the bowls club do go and see the extent of the damage created by the badgers. We’re now working on new fencing solutions so we can then attempt to save the currently ‘brown and very turned-upand-over’ … green. Money permitting (and we are looking at funding options) we’re also aiming to ‘tart up’ the club house in the Spring. We had a fabulous 2018 season, and we want to get more of you up to see what it's all about this year!! Get in touch with Ken Rawson for more details.

Nextdoor is a free desktop and mobile app that connects members to their individual neighbourhoods with the bonus of connecting to wider communities too. Acting as a community noticeboard, here you can find almost anything from events, recommendations for services right through to special crime bulletins. Book clubs, walking groups, special interest societies have all been started here. If you want to find out something the key here is to post a question and someone locally will have a helpful answer!

Horticultural and Craft Society Centenary

H

appy New Year! Easton had another successful and social village year in 2018: the opening and instant appreciation of the Peace Garden, and the magnificent efforts and support for the WWI commemoration weekend are both obvious highlights. The Horticultural and Crafts Society was involved in both of these events, and are proud to support these community-building activities, but now we turn our attention to the year to come. For the Horti Soc 2019 is a particularly important year, marking as it does the centenary of the society’s founding.

One way that the Society is celebrating this exceptional event is to place six large half barrels of flowers around the village. Have you spotted them all yet? They have been painted and planted up for winter and spring with bulbs and colourful winter bedding. In late May this will be removed and the tubs replanted. The tub at the Church has been planted with a tulip called Mariette: this has deep rose coloured flowers and should be in bloom in April or May. In bloom now are Violas and

A number of the Committee have been delving back into the archives and we will be putting displays in various events throughout the year. As we have been planning our programme we have tried to add either some historical context, highlight events from the past, or simply demonstrate the benefits of being a member of the Society. If anyone has any memorabilia – perhaps “inherited” from a parent – or memories of attending Shows with their parents, please feel free to share with us. Contact any of the Committee. You may already have seen a number

Panolas in white and shades of pink. Panolas are a hybrid between Violas and Pansies: their flowers are midway in size between both parents but the flowers should hold up much better against the rain than those of Pansies. These plants came from Hillview Nursery on the A43 as you enter Collyweston. The owner Arthur Scott has decided to retire at the end of 2018. His plants were always very well grown (many people have bought their plants and ready-planted hanging baskets from him for years) and the nursery will be missed. eothnewsandviews@gmail.com


In the Garden of large half-barrel tubs around the village, with a “temporary notice” peeking out. During the course of the year each one will be re-planted to reflect the changing seasons: this may hopefully give villagers ideas about how they could maintain their own tub year-round. Please also check out the more detailed article about the tubs, and the photo below! And talking about giving people ideas: we are very keen to launch a Junior Membership group. We have a number of families who have shown interest in the proposal, and it would be great to get the ideas of our younger residents about the sorts of activities they might get involved in. As an example, we are at the early stages of planning a “community orchard” – and this might be an ideal project for our Junior Members to help with – after all, they are the ones who will see the trees mature over a number of years.

For anyone who likes more of a challenge, we are hoping to run one or more trips to see Mr Al Perna’s garden in Werrington. For regular exhibitors and visitors to the Show, this wonderful gentleman needs no introduction! We would hope that seeing how he does things might inspire more people to “have a go”. Numbers will be restricted to 20 Members only, but we could run more than one trip. The usual trip to visit a garden will also be slightly different this year – we are already consulting with our Members about a more distant garden (or possibly two gardens) with an over-night stay. If you are thinking of joining the Society, membership runs from January to December, so now is the perfect time (and our AGM is on 15th January). Sign up and make sure you hear about all our events throughout the year. New committee members most welcome!

Desert Island Plant

As part of our celebrations we’ve asked several villagers what would be their "Desert Island Plant". Our President Marion Cutforth says “My favourite plant has always been the rose - I have around 50 rose bushes in my garden! - I love the variety of colours and shapes and scents. The range is enormous, with the lovely old Damask roses, or the old English roses, as well

as hybrid teas. They are centuries old and grow everywhere in the world. What’s not to like about them.” Just imagine your own desert island, where the climate and soil conditions are extraordinary and everything planted there grows well. So – what would you choose?

Building a library Classic books. Subject – WINTER PLANTS Colour in the Winter Garden By Graham Stuart Thomas This book proves that winter is not the dead season it is always thought to be. This is a classic that is occasionally reprinted but is seen often in second-hand bookshops. Look out for it.

In the garden

Where can I plant?

Ken Rawson finds spaces for new plants Right – we are in the middle of it. Winter I mean. The pressure is off, so the Saturday newspaper gardening articles say, we can browse through catalogues with feet up. That’s fine but I think the real planning and the best ideas come from being out there, in the garden, observing. Asking yourself questions like “how can I improve on this” or “where am I going to plant that plant I purchased last year that has since been kicking about near the back door”. My recurring thought is “where can I find space for new plants?” There is always somewhere. It depends on the eventual size of the plant of course but by observing at this stripped-back, all-revealed time of year, there are usually places that come into sight. In full summer these little hidey-holes are covered but now they are plainly seen. It’s these places that I like to make use of, usually for winter.

Now I see you. At the base of deciduous shrubs are likely places for creating little winter pictures with plants or bulbs. Bulbs are ideal for this as they can be enjoyed when in flower and forgotten about when dying back and being hidden by emerging spring leaves of the guardian shrub. Snowdrops, narcissus and scillas are good here. The point is, that being close to the shrubs stems they can have the space to themselves and, generally, avoid being poked with a fork when you are ‘gardening’. Cyclamen are ideal as they have good foliage all winter. Use the spring-flowering types such as C.coum. The autumn flowers of C. hederafolium may well be hidden from sight by your perennials. Arum 10

italicum Pictum can make a great display with its variegated foliage all winter. While our attention is around the base of shrubs, other ways of squeezing in extra interest is to consider the scrambling or weaving characteristics of certain plants. Hardy geraniums like Ann Folkard, Buxton’s Variety and G. wallichianum will find their way up through the shrub to add an extra layer of colour over its surface. Verbena bonariensis will stretch up through to appear at the top of a moderately-sized shrub or perennial clump.

Back to the wall. At the base of walls and fences there can be found planting places. Usually too dry to plant many perennials for summer, winter and spring flowers can flourish. The bulbs mentioned above would all suit, as would drought-loving foliage plants like epimediums, asarum, Galium oderatum and many ferns. These can take the eye during winter, flower, and then simply rest behind the summer screen. Yes, they could be enjoyed in summer as well but the point is they are quite happy to entertain you in the sparser months. One flower that does its thing in spring and disappears for summer, so suited to these summer-shy spaces, is Cardamine quinquefolia. Violet flower sprays at around 4” high suddenly appear from nowhere, (the way cyclamen flowers do) followed by foliage that forms a patch of cover for late winter. They disappear to make room for the summer relief shift. So, if you think you’ve run out of room, look again. There will be some place waiting for an occupant. eothnewsandviews@gmail.com


Travel I sent 100 passengers on holiday in 2018, which is over three times the volume from 2017. This growth is purely attributed to the support I receive from villagers that have booked and referred me, over 60% of you! Currently 11% of my clients are repeat bookers. After asking customers “How did I do?” by rating me out of a 100. To date my customer rating is 93%. This completely reinforces my passion for putting people and holiday’s together. And finally, I have achieved a great work/ life balance, something so important to me which I never thought possible. I’m thrilled that people enjoy their journey to book with me and share how confident they are to book again. I want to let ALL my customers know how extremely thankful I am for YOUR support over the last year; I wouldn’t be here without you. My customers ARE my business.

How I work…. Get in touch by giving me a call, e-mail or text to arrange a suitable time to meet up (you don’t have to leave your house, I can come to you). I’m available January & February 2018

In the village

The WW1 Organising Group want to pass on very special and heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped, supported and participated in what proved to be an amazing series of events that truly brought the village together. Appreciation for the amount of work that went into the planning, content and running of events over the two days was phenomenal – from both villagers and many visitors (not to mention the BBC and Rutland Radio!). The best news … a donation of £6,000 has been passed to The Royal British Legion. Lots more photos of the weekend can be found at: https://bit.ly/2G9XW6X

Centenary weekend success!

Thank you from the PCC

A big thank you for all those people involved in the Remembrance Saturday and Sunday services, what a special weekend. Also to everyone who helped with the clearing and cleaning of the Church and churchyard. It is all very much appreciated.
