Anyone interested in joining our committee for 2017/18 are very welcome.

After the AGM we are having a Gardener Question Time.
Questions should be handed in to Jean Faulkner ( e-mail jeanfaulkner) beforehand.  We are having 4 of our members answering your questions about gardening.  Hopefully we are all going to learn new ideas!

After the Gardeners Question Time we will have nibbles and a glass of something.  Everyone welcome.

On Saturday 20th May we will be having our annual plant sale - remember to pot up those cuttings, plant a few extra seeds or when dividing perennials pot an extra one up for the plant sale.
