Wimborne in Bloom's Pre-Christmas Coffee Morning held on Saturday (16th November) at the home Anthony and Christine Oliver raised £635.

"It is a splendid amount" said Richard Nunn, Chairman of Wimborne in Bloom after the event. A fine dry morning encouraged around 90 visitors. 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 the bring and buy and Christmas toys tables.

The Coffee Morning was held a week before Wimborne in Bloom's 27th anniversary and the money raised will go towards our 'in Bloom' Campaign in 2020. 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 £20,000 a year.
