Well we have 14 months before the Grange University Hospital is due to open so we are aiming to get the Garden safe for visitors by that time. Path laying is the most essential part of this aim, so we would really appreciate help from anybody wishing to volunteer this spring.
Here are the dates for the next working party weekends, the first of which is this coming Saturday. Morning session will be 10am to 1pm, afternoon session 1.30pm to 4.30pm (or come for as long or short as you wish!)
Saturday 22nd Feb (Wales v France KO 16.45)
Sunday 15th March
Saturday 4th April
A light lunch such as soup and a roll will be provided and we usually have plenty of cake too!
Work will be mainly manual, as we have more paths to lay, marking and making borders for paths, barrowing soil and chippings, preparing flower and veg beds, etc. However, for those who cannot do heavy manual work, there will probably be some seed sowing to do and help with food preparation, teas, coffees etc, is always welcome. As the weather forecast is not great, the work plan will be adjusted accordingly and we will cut short the sessions if need be. At this stage any help will be a step in progress and much appreciated.
I do hope you can spare a few hours to help us with this fantastic project!
For catering purposes, please RSVP to Binca Wilson, Membership Secretary at email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you soon
