A GROUP of Jewish Winchester residents have celebrated 10 years of community work.

On Sunday, November 19, a group of more than 20 Winchester and District Jews met to plant wild daffodils for Mitzvah Day at Hillier’s Haven in the north of the city.

Mitzvah Day is an occasion when Jews across the country work for their wider communities. 

The group started planting bulbs 10 years ago at the Sir Leslie Scott garden by the City Mill and four years ago moved to Hillier’s Haven, where English bluebells and daffodils have been planted.

Over that time, they have planted several thousand bulbs.

The group was joined by Cllr Kathleen Becker and Cllr John Tippett-Cooper of Winchester City Council, and Roy Perry, former Hampshire County Council Leader.
