Jubilee Well Dressing 2022

Goodness the Jubilee celebrations are lasting a long time. We held our annual Well Dressing event on Derby Arboretum on Sunday 26 June, with the theme of the Platinum Jubilee. 

Beautiful designs created by Spiral Artists, Jenny and Kate, a lovely blessing and welcome from Rev Simon Cartwright, violin playing and tea and cake, who could ask for more.

Glorious sunshine as well!!
