The June edition of the Beacon has just been uploaded to this website. It’s slightly earlier than normal, so that the Scarning Art Club exhibition over the Bank Holiday weekend could be included.

Last month’s Plant & Cake Sale was a huge success, despite the rainy weather. So, thank you to everyone who turned out. Turn to page 18 for details. If you’ve got a garden or veg plot, you probably enjoy the Through the Garden Gate and She Talks A Lot articles each month.

On Sunday June 27th, eight different gardens are thrown open to visitors, all for the single price of £5 as part of the Open Gardens Day.  The day is topped off with a summer barbecue courtesy of Roger & Yvonne Long. All proceeds from the whole day go towards Scarning Church. Full details of both events are on page 13.

An intriguing article with connections to Scarning School is The Miller’s Tale on page 11. George Miller also has links with the FA Cup Final, NCFC and the Titanic!
Miller Close is named in tribute to Mr Miller and will be discussed in the What’s In A Name article next month, but which discusses the background to Ted Ellis Way this month on page 18.

If you’re an animal lover and/or you’re frustrated at how much you throw into the green bin each week, read the Reuse|Reduce|Recycle article on page 17 .
