The Grove Park Music Festival has kicked off in 2014, with a Spring Concert of Wells Virtuosi, musicians from the string department of Wells Cathedral School. Conducted by Matthew Souter and with a programme including works by Mendelssohn, Strauss, Hindemith and Respighi, the concert, at St Nicholas’ Church, W4 2PH, was among the first of this year's Festival.

The GPG initiative to plant the previously neglected cattle trough in Burlington Lane from April 2012 onwards has been much admired by local residents and visitors alike. Earlier this year we added a planting of daffodils and narcissi in the tubs across the road, although their flowering has already passed. Meanwhile the Spring trough planting (above) has been superseded by a new selection, with more to come.
