Gardening News For December

At the November meeting, the club decided to donate £100 from the proceeds of the plant sale/coffee morning to each of the following good causes:

  • Spaldwick Church
  • Escape youth group
  • Magpas Air Ambulance

At the meeting, there was a demonstration of Christmas wreath and festive door swag making. A Christmas workshop will be held by members on Saturday 14th December 2013 in Spaldwick Church where we will be making some of the festive arrangements that will adorn the church during the Christmas season. Some of the group will be making festive arrangements for their homes.

The Open Gardens event on Sunday 22nd June 2014 now has ten gardens confirmed. In addition to the gardens, we will be providing: a plant stall, afternoon teas, a flower festival in the church and promoting the Escape youth group. If any other organisations wish to become involved in this event, please contact the Gardening Club. Members of the club will be having their Christmas get-together on 6th December when there will be a quiz and Secret Santa as well as a delicious buffet. The next meeting will be on 8th January 2014 at 7.30pm at 1 Ivy Way. New members are always welcome.
