Update: Unfortunately, the craft fair has been postponed. The flower show and guided walk will go on as planned.
Hop on the train from Plymouth to Bere Ferrers on Saturday 26th March to enjoy the spring colours of the Tamar Valley and a triple bill in this picturesque village:
Art & Craft Fair (Bere Ferrers Social Club, 1pm – 4.30pm)
The fair will include paintings, glass blowing, lacemaking, jewellery, pottery, handmade soaps, fused glass and Tamar Valley wine tasting. Bar, light lunches & refreshment. Free admission.
Spring Flower Show (Church Hall, 1.30pm – 4.30pm)
Organisers promise “masses of magnificent daffodils, in all their colourful variety” as well as many other Spring blossoms and plants, including camellias, tulips, primulas, fritillaries and grape hyacinths, plus garden produce, photographs and lots of delicious entries in the home produce section. Free admission.
Guided Daffodil Walk (starts Church Hall, 2.30pm)
To compliment this year’s flower show, there will a free guided circular walk from Bere Ferrers to Hallowell Wood via Shutecombe and Holes Farm. Meet outside Bere Ferrers Church Hall. The walk will last around 90 minutes (shorter version available for those wanting to get the 15 40 train back to Plymouth). It may be very muddy along the river, so come prepared.
Take the train from Plymouth station at 12 24, arriving into Bere Ferrers at 12 42 (or go later on the 14 24 arriving 14 42).
Walk from the station down to the Social Club and Church Hall (10 minutes’ walk – see map).
Trains back to Plymouth depart at 15 40, 18 00 and 19 44 (if you want to also try the village pub, the Olde Plough Inn, open 12pm-3pm and 5.30pm-10pm).
The Off-Peak Day Return fare is £5.60 for adults, £2.80 for children (5-15). Under 5s travel free.
Passengers can also join the train at Devonport, Dockyard, Keyham and St Budeaux Victoria Road stations.
