Wishing Well Donations
This project was instigated by Lion Mike Bartlett.
The first well was installed in Dobbies Garden Centre in Fenny Stratford on March 2nd 2007. The second well was installed in the Wyevale Garden Centre at Woburn Sands on 5th October 2007
In 2014, the Wyevale well was moved to the Christmas grotto at Dobbies.
The sourcing and installation was done by Lion Mike with the aid of Lion Bob Webb. Now both wells are regularly producing good returns every month. The monies are allocated to specific charities from time to time. See details below.
However, As we have now left Wyevale, to whom we give many thanks for their support; we are looking for a new site, so if you can help us, please contact the club secretary.
Look out for more updates as the monies from our wishing wells are distributed to other causes.
