Saturday 9 November

Thanks to all who attended last month – we had a good morning clearing a lot of the drainage channels to get the water flowing again – muddy work but very worthwhile!

Our next work session is on Saturday 9th November meeting at 10am in the Hollies car park. We have some bulbs left to plant but will also be continuing with general clearing work and hopefully the weather will remain dry. Bring any tools you have and remember gardening gloves and sturdy footwear. Refreshments will be provided when we finish.

Future dates:
Saturday December 14th
Saturday January 11th
Saturday February 8th

May News – The Plant Sale!

Thanks to all who helped in April – the work you do really does make a difference!

There is no working session in May – instead we have our annual plant sale on Saturday 18th May which starts at 9.30 am instead of 10. We’ll be setting up under the trees just through the car park from 8.30 onwards and any help you can give with this will be appreciated. The sale will go on until 11 am (or sooner if everything sells!) so do come along and buy if you can’t help with the setting up. Also please spread the word to friends, family, colleagues and anyone else who may be interested. We’ve always done well with this event and it’s a good opportunity to raise awareness of the work we do. We also have a refreshment stall serving hot drinks and homemade cakes – any donations for the cake stall will be gladly accepted!!

We look forward to seeing many of you there.

Next dates:
Saturday 8th June 10 am
