List of Prizes Summer Fair




We were all very sorry to learn that Botanic closed in early July and since then Edwina has been busy dismantling that which she created. A hard thing to do.

Now it is time to acknowledge that when Edwina Finn opened her beautiful shop at 24 Church Street, we were all so pleased that following the closure of Llyods Bank we would not have to live with an empty shop. Far from it, the attractive displays of blooming flowers either side of the shop’s steps brought sparkle to the Street.

Edwina soon became an active member of The Wye Business Association and supported the Food Festival by running an Art Competition for the Village Children. It was a very special event because Edwina made the Children feel special and valued by exhibiting their artwork in her shop.

When it came to announcing the winners she hosted a wonderful cup cake reception. Her establishment was bursting at the seams with excited youngsters and proud Mothers.

Her love of all things Botanic showed very much in her beautiful artwork and choice of gifts.

There were many compliments paid to her business.

Sometimes a still small voice tells us when we must do something. Edwina’s told her that after over five years in business in Wye, it was time to close this particular chapter of her life.

Whilst we are sorry to see her go; we wish Edwina, Duncan and their family all the very best.

Happy painting Edwina!

Chairman Wye Business Association
