Glut Day out 3

We hope to see you at the Brightwalton Fete

The Gluttonous Gardener will again be hosting the Domestic Hero Tent at the Brightwalton Fete this year (4th May from 1 - 4pm in case you'd forgotten).

With a wide range of classes to enter, from the finest fudge or three sticks of perfect rhubarb for adults, or for the children, the yuckiest looking bottle of potion to the best home-made sweets, there is something for everyone. The Arkle Family reined supreme last year with their chocolate cake which was indeed a particular highlight last year but we are hoping even more entrants this year to give them a run for their money!
