"A most informative tour included the history of the parish described by Marguerite Paul, Woggy Bienvenu, and Paul le Pelley of the National Trust. Several sites of interest were visited including the Holy Well, the National Trust Property of La Caches, and the German Occupation Museum. Marguerite in particular possessed a wonderful knowledge of the area. The judges applauded the Green Lane scheme. The judges departed having learned so much about the history, heritage and natural environment of the parish."
Passing our future project to renovate Les Houards well, the judges finished the route at the Occupation Museum for coffee and homemade macaroons where they met the deadheading team of volunteers and other members of the Forest Floral committee. The judges' overall comment was:
"A most interesting and informative tour provided the judges with a fascinating history of the parish. Some positive achievements have taken place over the past twelve months and there are a number of exciting projects underway. Renewal of planters at the Douzaine Room and the Le Bourg bus stop has enhanced the floral displays at those locations and the energy and enthusiasm of the volunteers are to be commended; their efforts have been made evident during the judging tour."
I therefore would like to thank all the Forest parishioners who have volunteered in some way to make the parish a better place to live. We look forward to your continued support. If you would like to help, please get in touch with any of the Committee members.
