We are absolutely delighted to announce our sponsorship of the printing of a charming new book called ‘The Wallingford Fairies.’ This beautifully written and illustrated book by Greg Ryder, a local author, is centred around a magical fairy trail, right here in Wallingford.

This heart-warming book not only captures the imagination but also fosters a connection to the local community, as many of Wallingford’s shops and other premises have teamed up to create this experience, with every penny raised going to the Oxford-based children’s hospice, Helen & Douglas House to help the families of terminally ill children.

As the pages come to life, readers can embark on a journey around Wallingford, following a simple map and clues which lead to miniature fairy doors and carefully concealed miniature treasures that the fairies have left behind (also created by the author) outside each of the 11 shops and premises.

This family-friendly experience can be enjoyed by both the local community as well as visitors to the area, it will certainly make a wonderful gift too!

The purchase of the book also contributes to a noble cause, as this fairy trail is dedicated to raising funds for a hospice charity. It’s a testament to the power of imagination and community, where the magic of the fairy world aligns with the real-world magic of providing care, comfort, and dignity to those in need.

Pick up your copy of “The Wallingford Fairies” today at Root One Garden Centre, and get ready to embark on a whimsical quest.
