2018 Annual Pre Christmas Coffee Morning Raises Almost £600

Wimborne in Bloom’s Pre-Christmas Coffee Morning held on Saturday (17th November) at the home Anthony and Christine Oliver raised £590.

"It is a splendid amount" said Richard Nunn, Chairman of Wimborne in Bloom after the event. A fine dry morning encouraged over 80 visitors and this in spite of a number of other events going on in the Town at the same time. He thanked everyone for their support in coming and all those that helped and indeed supported the event with donations, items for both the main raffle and the Christmas cake raffle and also for the bring and buy and Christmas toys tables.

The Coffee Morning was held a week before Wimborne in Bloom’s 26th anniversary and the money raised will go towards our 'in Bloom' Campaign in 2019. Costs to plant up the Town for both the summer and autumn together with watering throughout the summer have risen over the years and now cost around £18,000 a year.
