Chester Green Well Dressing

As has happened for the last few years, the St Paul’s Preshool Playgroup (Derby’s BEST preschool!) are holding a Well Dressing at Marcus Street Well. The dedication is happening on Friday June 7th at 10.30 am. It will then be moved to be part of the display at the Flower festival at St. Paul’s Church on 8th – 10th June.

Please come and support this lovely community event. The Well Dressing has been lovingly created by the children of St. Paul’s Preschool Playgroup, and is their best yet 🙂  This years well dressing can be seen below, and the well dressing of previous years, and details of the event on can be found by clicking this link.
