Planted Wellies

Wellies Wanted! N.E. Minster Girlguiding are planting up tired and leaky old wellies as part of a community project and to help the environment by recycling items in a fun way. If they can collect sufficient wellies they hope to be able to create three spectacular floral displays using these novel planters, these will be at The Priest's House Museum, The Model Town and at The Cricket Ground. Unwanted Wellies can be donated towards this project at 'Wits End Corner', 34 Park Lane.
