Gardening

Meetings are held in St Mark’s Church Hall, Westmoreland Road, at 2.30 on the first Wednesday of each month except January, July and August.  

There is a plant stall every month for which we are very glad to receive contributions.  

This is an open meeting and everyone is welcome.   Just turn up!  We're a friendly group and have tea and buscuits after the talk and it is a chance to chat to people with a shared interest in gardening.
