News from recent events – April and May 2017

The Plant Sale – On 18th May 2017

 

Despite the heavy rain, the plant sale made a whopping £288.  The rain was a mixed blessing – much needed for our gardens, and to fill the water butts, but it did put a bit of a dampener on some of our sales.  But congratulations to all the plant growers and particularly the sellers, who turned out last Thursday.  We are hoping to sell or swap a few more plants at our next gardening party on 4th June.  Look out for flyers and publicity as we are planning an extra special morning, which is also linked to the Chelsea Fringe Festival.

On the 4th April we held our spring Family Learning Event. There was loads to do, and those who came had a great time. We had more activities than there was time for, so we will be doing some family activities again at our next gardening working Party on Sunday 4th June 10 -12. Whatever the weather we will be there, as we are sheltered from rain or …. given a chance….hot sun.
Until then – some photos from last time………..

Purple4Polio Event – Saturday 25th March. 9.30 – 10-30

The crocuses we planted in November are now growing well and coming into flower, so we have fixed the date for our postponed Purple4Polio celebration at the Fairfield Health Centre, as Saturday March 25th, 9.30 – 10.30.

This will be an informal get together and we hope as many of you as possible will be able to join us. As suggested previously, wear something purple if you can.

We would appreciate you letting us know if you are going to join us on Saturday (email charltoncommunitygardens@gmail.com)

We look forward to seeing you there.
