Every year the Abbey hosts an amazing flower display and I am ashamed to say that in all the years we have been living here it was the first time we visited, even though it is literally on our doorstep.
So the ‘Crayons’ family dragged ourselves away from the computers, some of us kicking and screaming. I am so glad we did, because we got to see some fabulous work by the local ladies, the theme this year was Shakespeare and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and effort that was put into the work.
It was also the first time I had really seen the inside the Abbey when it wasn’t dark and cold (normally visit during winter time) and loved the atmosphere. We are very lucky to live near such a historic landmark and should really make more of an effort to take advantage of it!
