Tattenhall Remembers - Britannia Roses

The vibrancy of our High Street is important to us all. We are more than fortunate to have a terrific group of businesses and services at our fingertips.

Importantly too are the green and open spaces and not least the work that has gone into the watering of the tubs, the containers and the flowerbeds in the Parish during this amazing heatwave.

On that note, don't miss the fantastic display of roses outside the newly painted Olympus House on the High Street and immediately opposite Church Bank.

For those of you who don't know — these roses are called 'Britannia' and were provided by Diana Barbour of Bolesworth Estate during our 'Tattenhall Remembers' event which was held in 2014 and which marked the centenary anniversary of the start of The Great War. Custodians of this rose bed, in particular, are Anne and Tony McGrath. Tony prunes the roses each autumn, gives them several feeds and top dresses the soil every year. They do not disappoint — click on image to enlarge and a huge 'THANK YOU' to Tony.

In case you are new to the village or simply wish to remind yourselves of our 'Tattenhall Remembers' Event in 2014, then CLICK HERE.

And just for information, our planning is well advanced for 'Tattenhall Commemorates' to be held this November 2018 and which marks the centenary of the Armistice — watch this space for updates.

So I deleted it from my inbox and my...
