The Gardening Group is now well established

Group meetings will be held on the 4th Monday of each month. 



Potential Members of the Gardening Group at the Initial Meeting


The Gardening Group committee have now formulated a plan of meetings for the coming months.

There will be a plant bring and buy stall and a raffle. If you bring plants for the stall please could you label them with your name as any unsold items need to be take home again. Proceeds from the sale and raffle will go into group funds. A subscription charge of £2 per person for this first meeting will be in place to make sure we cover the costs of the hall and teas/coffees etc.  The members of the group have agreed to pay £10.00 per year to cover the  meetings held in the Westlake Room at the rear of Balsall Common Village Hall, Station Road.
