Bulbs set to bring bright spring

League of Friends planting spring bulbs

Fabulous spring bulb planting team!

On a wet and dreary Saturday Somerset morning, seven rays of light shone on the grounds of South Petherton Community Hospital – Mary Daniels, Chris Gough, Shelley Langdon, Helen Chaloner, Cathie Meering, Mike Zaple (and Shirley Zaple the photographer).

South Petherton Community Hospital is looking forward to an attractive display of spring flowers along its drive in 2017. The bulbs were kindly donated by South Somerset District Council and Brimsmore Garden Centre in Yeovil.


Cathie Meering with League of Friends Chairperson, Helen Chaloner, collapsed on her trowel.

We would like to thank the wonderful Hospital Volunteers, members of the League of Friends and staff, who all gave their time to help with the planting.
