The Gardening Group started in August 2004 to tend the garden on the corner of Eden and Orford Roads (later becoming the Village Square). We maintain the adopted planters, flowerbeds, tree pits and any public spaces that require attention.
We have a core group of stalwart volunteers who turn up come rain or shine. Those who join in include families with children and people of all ages, abilities and from a variety of backgrounds. A warm welcome awaits!
On Wednesday evenings at 7 pm and all Saturdays at 10.30 am, come rain or shine, till and including 6 August we’ll be holding gardening activities. Please meet on the Village Square with gloves, brooms, shears and secateurs and garden forks, if you have them; otherwise all equipment will be provided.
From 3 September we meet at 10.30 am on the Village Square on the first Saturday of each and every month, come rain or shine and have a year-round list of activities that includes weeding, planting and pruning, litter-picking, painting out and cleaning off graffiti, re-painting street furniture and clearing and cutting back vegetation from footpaths.
If you would like to get involved on the committee or as a gardening volunteer please contact Helen Lerner via the contact form.
