During the evening of Monday 25th July we had two of our table top strawberry tunnels burnt down deliberately. We lost all the strawberries, irrigation, troughs and plastic covers. To repair / replace will cost in the region of £2000.

If anybody saw anything suspicious on that evening or in the early hours of Tuesday morning please get in touch and we will pass all information to the police investigation.

We apologise but can no longer offer table top strawberries for PYO.

The field can be found to the right hand side of road crossing the Holt / Farndon bridge (just beside the Bridge Salon) and is now in flower. The idea was promoted by Jonny Hulson from the North Wales Wildlife Trust and the field owners, Andrew and Val Pridding and family, were delight to have their field used to bring colour to this part of the village.
