2019 Annual Spring Coffee Morning Raises Over £600

The Wimborne in Bloom Annual Spring Coffee Morning was held at the home of Anthony and Christine Oliver on Saturday (18th May). Although the weather was slightly on the cool side it remained dry. Over 70 people attended and almost £650 was raised towards this years 'In Bloom' Campaign. This is a record sum for the Spring Coffee Morning and included the sale of the new 2020 Wimborne in Bloom Calendar, which will be on sale along with the Wimborne in Bloom Tote Bag, two firsts for Wimborne in Bloom, at the various fundraising events for the remainder of the year.

The Town Crier Chris Brown recently appointed by the Town Council as a Freeman of the Town drew the raffle. Speaking after the event Chairman Richard Nunn thanked everyone for coming from across the community. Not only did he announce dates for a busy period for the 'In Bloomers' over the coming months but also he was delighted to advise that the new Town Mayor, Cllr Shane Bartlett had chosen Wimborne in Bloom as one of the Charities he would support during his Mayoral Year.
