Gardeners Questions

Around 150 people attended the recent Gardeners’ Questions evening chaired by Pippa Greenwood. It was a great evening with wide variety of questions for the panel to answer. Thanks to all members and friends who donated prizes for the raffle. By the end of the evening we had raised £410 which we divided evenly between our two charities, Garden House Hospice Care and the local mental health charity Growing People.
