To All Gardeners
Many thanks for all your hard work on Wednesday. The garden looked so much tidier afterwards but it is that time of year and I am sure there will be more deadheading to be done next month. We meet the first Wednesday of each month at St Peter's from 9.30 - 11.00 when we finish with coffee and biscuits!. If you can spare some time make a note in your diary and please join us. Thank you Mike for all you guidance and supervision.
