[09:15:31] Brenda Elldred:

Thank you Adrian for your wise words. It is definitely challenging for relationships especially for those who parent or partner are vulnerable. We are all praying for the miracle vaccine that will at least help to get us back to some kind of normal. Glad Helen was OK and you had a good trip.
[09:29:18] Resident109:

Thank you Elaine the tulips are beautiful I can never thank you all for your thoughtfulness you are so kind x
[09:40:47] Resident033:

You are most welcome indeed. Happy home for happy tulips 🌷
[09:52:34] Michelle Dalliston:

Adrian, you are a walking miracle in yourself! 😃 Absolutely right though to keep warning us of the risk and the need to stay safe. There may be a miracle cure in the longer term, but the miracle right now is how people are looking after one another and communities coming together ❤️ 💐🌞
[09:54:51] Brenda Elldred:

[09:56:43] Resident023:

Covid-19 will be remembered for many things. Amazing people have done amazing things. Tulips will always remind me of the love and care of local people.

Many years ago my sister and I bred hamsters, but one day they were sadly struck down by illness and all died.

An old village yokel suggested turning them into jam, the taste was supposedly acquired but excellent. So, my sister and I set about doing this with our once beloved pets.

Yuk - it was awful and the jam was thrown on the compost heap. But, to our amazement - when we woke the next day the compost heap had become a mass of beautiful and magnificent flowers.

This proves that you really do get Tulips from Hamster jam.

Please don’t try this at home. Go to Bloms instead!
[11:00:21] Resident097:

😂😂😂😂 I had to read that twice then got it
[11:04:10] Resident033:

[11:06:27] Resident086:

It took me a while but I got it after the third read 😳🤣
[11:07:11] Resident097:

I just had visions of Penty and her sister blending a hamster 😱
[11:08:14] Resident086:

I must admit I did to, 🤮 yuk
[11:10:44] Resident023:

Penty his a ‘he’
[11:11:12] Resident097:

Ooops Sorry
[11:12:35] Resident023:

Thrilled to get my🌷this morning. Wasn't expecting any more as I thought you would be all tuliped out after VE day celebration. Thank you so much. Will be watching Chelsea and all associated programmes this week. Not quite the same as visiting your wonderful exhibits there and at Malvern as I've been fortunate enough to do in the past though! Also thanks as ever to RVM for delivery.
[11:20:42] Resident015:

Thanks for my lovely Tulips their gorgeous and I am very lucky to get them x

[12:17:24] Resident110:

Hi Michelle thank you for the service and Zoom coffee. I am not sure how I got the ‘alternative’ back ground ! I am not by the Golden Gate Bridge or any other just enjoying the sunshine at home. 😄Take care Rosie

[14:26:29] Resident097:

Didnt realise that Lockdown was over and the village was hosting the new TT
Spose with the recent drop in economy that the racers chose Chelveston because of its natural beauty spots rather than booking a ferry, we should all be blessed that we have all this wonderful tourism in our village now... Naomi open the bar lets all sit and watch the racers
[14:39:39] Resident124:

[15:11:42] Resident051:

Brilliant 😂😂
[15:15:58] Adrian Dale:

About 20 years ago Higham to St Neots was advertised in MCN as the best time trial route in the country.
[15:16:46] Resident097:

They should put speedbumps all the way down that road
[15:17:28] Resident097:
