Can you help? working party 13th july

We are pleased to announce a series of Working Party dates and would love to hear from you if you can help. This is primarily to make a start on constructing what we are calling the “reflective quadrant” in the northwest corner of the garden.

This part of the garden has been cleared of vegetation and has been dormant for a few months and we need to get paths laid out so we can plant up the beds in the autumn. Work will involve digging and laying paths, but we have plenty of lighter work that will need doing also. Whatever your abilities/interests we can find something for you to do! The dates/times are:

Saturday July 13th – 10am to 1pm and 1.30pm to 4.30pm
Saturday August 10th – (times as above)
Saturday September 7th – (times as above)

We will also be offering a lunchtime BBQ as a thank you for volunteering efforts and an opportunity to socialise.
Please consider supporting these working parties to help us progress the next exciting stage of the garden development.

If you would like to volunteer for one of these events, please let us know by e-mailing us at info.lgh.garden@gmail.com so we know who to expect and can cater accordingly.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Annual General Meeting 2017

The second AGM of the Friends of Llanfrechfa Grange Walled Garden was held in the Main Hall at Llanfrechfa Grange on a dark and soggy afternoon on 20 November 2017. Despite the dreadful weather, a few brave souls joined the Trustees for a look back over the last year’s activities and to hear news of our future plans.

The Trustees presented our Annual Report for 2016-17 and Chris Parsons, Treasurer, reported a healthy bank balance in his Financial Statement. Both documents can be downloaded here:

A raffle and sales held on the day, along with some membership renewals, raised around £100 for the charity.

Our thanks to all our supporters for your contributions over the past year.
