The Bluebell Bunting Society, by Poppy Dolan, is a story about friendship and community. The synopsis says: "Welcome to Bluebell Hall. Pull up a wonky chair, grab a cream bun and settle into a story about a little village, a determined caretaker - and bunting.
At twenty-nine, Connie isn't quite where she thought she'd be. When her beloved gran died, Connie returned to Hazelhurst, the village she grew up in, and took over her gran's old job as caretaker at the village hall. It might not be the stuff of dreams, but Connie loves working at Bluebell Hall - the heart of the community fuelled by copious cups of tea.
So when Bluebell Hall is threatened with closure, Connie is determined not to let greedy property developers get their hands on it. She hatches a plan bonkers enough that it just might work. All it takes is a needle and thread, scraps of old material and willing hands. Can Connie convince the people of Hazelhurst that their village hall is worth saving? And will she save herself in the process...?" The Bluebell Bunting Society is out in March 2017.
