Putting up the Well Dressing


The well dressing for 2012 will be put in place on the evening of Friday 13th July, ready for the official blessing at 2pm on Saturday 14th July and will remain on view until the following weekend.

The dressing will, as usual, be on display on the village green, in front of the school.

After the blessing of the well dressing the May Queen will open the Church Fete.

Making the Well Dressing

It takes a week to make the well dressing and this will start with the puddling of the clay from 10am on Friday 6th July.

It would be great to have lots of help during the week, especially with the puddling and wooling, and later in the week for petalling.

The programme is::
