The next few months:

We have an interesting and varied  programme coming up!

Our final meeting of the year is on 15th December when we will be joined by Carole and John Matthews.   They will tell us about the quality, manufacture, types and different uses of garden tools, illustrating this with a wide selection of their vintage tools, which will also be available to purchase – not too late for that special Christmas present!

We start our 2023 programme on the 19th January with a return visit from Jo Worthy-Jones who gave a most interesting talk on bees at the start of our 2022 programme.  This time her topic will be 'Composting - why and how it benefits our gardens.'  We know that you can't keep growing in your soil without putting some goodness back and Jo will be giving us an insight in why we should compost and how it benefits our gardens.

Our February meeting is on the 16th when we are joined by Roger Umpelby, a professional Entomologist and Horticulturalist, presenting his talk 'Beneficial Creatures in the Garden'.  Not all the creatures in our gardens are pests, some are our friends, and Roger will be explaining who these are and what they do for us.

Just a reminder that our meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month at 7.15 for 7.30pm in the Crawford Hall, Bidford on Avon.  Visitors are very welcome to join us at only £3.50 including refreshments.  For further details please ring Annette Haines on 01789 268974.
