Planting for the Future


To keep the Agincourt commemoration going, local Scouts and Cubs have been planting 600 bulbs around the church, one for each year since the battle. On the first planting evening 28 Chipping Sodbury Scouts and six adults planted bulbs in glorious evening sunshine.

The following week Cubs from the 1st Yate Scout Group came planting as darkness fell. Scouts and Cubs both enjoyed hearing all about Agincourt and Sir John Codrington in the church afterwards.
