Monday  Gardening


The Monday afternoon Gardening club meet every Monday until the end of November from 1.30 p.m. All are welcome. Meet at the base or find us in the park

 

The Base will be used as a tea room when there are volunteers to run it. There will be signs within the park when the tea room is open and usually details on the facebook page. Come along and say hello. Refreshments are available with donations going to help further work in the park. If you can help, contact us.


Kids Rock are a private company who hire the base on a Wednesday morning from 10:30 for music and songs for pre-school children.


The latest news will be on Facebook
