Rain just held off for the first car boot sale of the year on May bank holiday and we hope for a lovely day for the next sale on Monday. After two very disappointing years when car boot sales on the Common were either rained off or prevented from happening by the anti-terrorist police activity in the area we hope that the sun will shine on us this year so that support for these popular sales will quickly climb back to its previous levels.

Once again the Memorial Hall was filled with colour at Booker & District Horticultural Society's Spring Show last Saturday. The weather may seem to us to have been a bit mixed but it certainly suited all the spring flowers and shrubs. The flower arrangers excelled themselves too. In this, the Society's 60th anniversary year, the floral art classes reflected anniversaries ranging from wood (5 years) up to sparkling diamond displays. In addition, there were craft items, photographs and delicious baked cakes, biscuits and pies on display.
