With Lockdown gradually being eased, it’s heartening to see life starting to return to normality with village events starting to take place again, the first of which is a Plant & Cake Sale which is taking place on Sat 1st May in aid of the Church.

Scarning Bowls Club is starting the new season with an away match at Swanton Morley, with many more matches in the following weeks. The Village Events page on the website has all their matches, along with details of the Club.

Both playing fields in the village have been spruced up, with the Shipdham Lane area looking particularly good.  With the lighter evenings and warmer weather, it’s the perfect opportunity to get some exercise and meet some friendly faces.

A wonderful initiative is being organised by the Johnson family on Welden Road – the Scarning Super Sunflower Show-Off! Hopefully we can feature some of the plants grown by the children of Scarning  (& adults!)  in due course.

If you’ve got a garden or veg plot, you’ve probably spent a lot of time tending and enjoying it over the past few months. So, why not show it off to your friends and neighbours in the Open Gardens Day on June 27th.  If you can’t open your garden, perhaps you could send some photos to the Beacon instead – a sunny corner, or your favourite plant maybe, for Scarning Scenes next month.
