The registration for this year’s Wheelbarrow and Open Garden Weekend is now officially closed with 94 barrows (a record!) and 9 open gardens each day (11 gardens in total); however, if I get any registrations over the weekend they will still get on the map.

If you’ve received an email this week saying that your barrow hasn’t been registered ignore it and don’t reply - it wasn’t from me.

In response to a letter from Better Barrow, Enterprise Inns states

“I am aware that there have been previous communications with the Co-op regarding their possible acquisition of the lease to convert the site into a convenience store, however, I can confirm that these discussions have now drawn to a close. We plan to retain the site as a public house and are considering the various options available to us with regard to an internal and external refurbishment. We have not decided upon a final scheme as yet so I am unable to commit to timescales or the nature of the work that will be carried out, but we are taking steps to ensure the long term future of this asset as a pub.
