As a tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on her Diamond Jubilee,

the people of Shaftesbury began planting thousands of snowdrops in public places around the town to create a series of scenic, accessible, snowdrop walks and to develop our unique, sustainable 21st century legacy; we are still planting.

Mother's Day, March 6th, 2016

You are invited to take a scenic walk and join us on Park walk and Pine Walk, Shaftesbury from 10am -12 noon where we will be planting snowdrops to mark Mother's day.

We supply all the tools and the snowdrops, just come along warmly dressed and make the Shaftesbury Snowdrops a part of your family story.

ODD ENCOUNTER IN SHAFTESBURY

by Timmy Crump 1921 - 2012

I seldom speak to strangers in the street
but walking through the churchyard into town
(a short-cut, green and peaceful, lined with limes)
saw oldish man, standing patiently
with lead in hand, the other end a dog,
black and looking older than the man.

What intrigued me most was that the dog
was smelling snowdrops, (winter on the wane).
I said: "I thought that snowdrops didn't smell."

The man replied, quite seriously: "Well,
the dog's stone deaf you see." I had to say:
'Of course, that would explain it," and went my way.

Timmy regularly enjoyed the walk along Bimport
and through the Trinity churchyard to the town
centre.
