Well Dressings Group
This group is only open to current Members of the Belper and District U3A or one of the Derbyshire Cluster U3As
Well Dressing is a very old custom peculiar to Derbyshire which I find very inspiring.
Materials are held by the group but each year fresh flowers are collected for the annual dressing.
Our aim is to enjoy the experience of all working as a team and I find it a very happy one.
The group's main venture is mid June with 'claying up' and the a very intensive week of decorating the board, culminating with the Blessing of the Wells in Belper River Gardens about the third week of July.
The wells, about twenty in all, stay for only one week until 'take-down day'.
Each year there is a different theme and this year, who knows, ideas will come I am sure!
There is no cost and well dressing will suit all sorts of people.
