Due to the current outbreak of Covid-19, we have collectively made the decision to cancel all of our children’s activities until the end of August. You will be issued a full refund in line with Eventbrite’s refund policy, which is 7 working days. We hope that you agree with and understand our decision and apologise for any inconvenience which this may have caused.
Lawns can sometimes begin to look rather the worse for wear as we reach the height of the summer. The combination of hot weather and the amount of time we spend using the grass for various activities can begin to take it's toll, however all is not lost because with a simple lawn care programme it will soon be looking healthy again.
We meet on a monthly basis in the restaurant at Poplar Nurseries and have a guest speaker at each meeting.
We also have 4 or 5 one day trips as well as a 5 day holiday each year for visiting various gardens.
