It’s M for ‘Magnificent effort’ as town councillors rolled up their sleeves and carried out some impromptu planning in the Stag Garden at the northern gateway to Midhurst today (Thursday, June 1).

New chairman of the Community and Environment Committee Judy Fowler and fellow town councillors Jeanette Sutton, Lesley Campbell and Carolyn Bishop were joined by volunteer Sarah Murison. They have planted the Stag Garden flower bed at the northern entrance to Midhurst with a giant red M in geraniums surrounded by more white geraniums. The flowers were all courtesy of Aylings Garden Centre at Trotton.

“We are very grateful for the generous donation from Aylings,” said Judy, “it has helped us create a lovely colourful entrance to the town.”

Town councillors are planning a permanent new gateway after volunteers who had been looking after the garden for 20 years retired last year. But as they wait for funding they decided to put in a temporary display for the summer season.
