Hi Everyone

We had a very lovely, interesting talk from Emma from the Walled Garden at Hawkhurst this evening and thank you to all of you who attended. I hope you all enjoyed the evening I sure did !

I hope this may have inspired you to visit the garden and cafe and support their work

Also perhaps to take a trip one Saturday morning to support the fundraising ( primarily by sale of plants) in an attempt to restore the Victorian Glasshouse locally at Alexandra Park Hastings

They have managed to only rescue one of many glass houses that were there years ago - when all the plants were grown to use in the Park itself - but at least that is one saved- and as we were told by Emma they are so expensive to restore sadly so every bit helps !

Enjoy your weekend and hope to see you at our next event -

Jumble Sale on the 28th October !Come and have a Rumble in the Jumble !"

Helpers required from 8am - please let me know if you can help

Donations wanted from 8am on the morning or call Alan to arrange collection 07870525441

Thank you all

Kind Regards
