Bluebells at Gumley

Late April and early May is always Bluebell time. This year was no exception and the mild weather meant a particularly good display was to be enjoyed.

On the Sunday after Easter, Gumley Woods was open again. More than 300 people visited to see the spectacular bluebells.

The entrance monies and other donations amounted to a wonderful £673.

This is to be divided between St Helen’s Church, Gumley and the Bendrigg Trust. The Bendrigg Trust is a residential adventure / activity centre for disabled children, adults and their parents in Cumbria.

Huge thanks to all the volunteers who made the open day possible.
